My first order; very happy with it. Had no problem germinating, and they're very fast-growing and healthy.
This was my first order from Thresh...The seed arrived very quickly. The packaging is easy to open and collect the seeds. The germination rate was excellent.
Looking forward to ordering from Thresh seeds again!
Ordered seed last winter in hopes of having time to start my herbal garden this spring ( little did I know we would all be in lockdown for Spring 2020. I was able to start my garden, and my bee balm is growing great. I will be ordering more seeds to add some flowers to my garden.
