Very happy to find seeds for Mohave Buckwheat. Great customer service too! Thank you.

Feed the Birds

The birds in my yard were very thorough, so I managed to achieve 0% germination of my Short Stuff and Buckwheat. Luckily, I planted less than half the seeds and I'll try again in the spring. It's been a tough year for everyone so I'm certainly not going to get mad at the birds. I was planting these seeds to renew my tortoise garden, so I expect my tortoise will stomp around to show his displeasure when he wakes up! But, I have no doubt that the seeds are viable and they are not responsible for the one-star rating.
