Easy to sow, high germination rate.
I live in Western Washington and these grew well from seed! I started a bunch indoors then planted them out but I think May was a little early because I did loose quite a few but the germination rate for these seeds where great! It’s nice to have something different in the garden! I would definitely buy these again!
Seeds sprout and grew into clumps. Too bad my growing season is short and the plants were killed early in September frost. Will try again next year and start early indoors.
These guys come up very delicate and can be hard to grow, but it's well worth the effort to give them a try.
I brought these thinking grass so easy to grow. I am a fair to better than average gardener. I was able to get many a dozen of these ting seeds to grow. I have put a clump together but I am afraid to put it in the yard. Luckily, the grass that has only grown to less than a foot looks so good inside with my Mellon vines.
