Has anyone else had problems with their seeds not germinating? I bought Madagascar Jasmine and Aster Matsonoff Red Stripe. I don't think I spelled the second one right the label ran. But nothing of either one came up.

i bought stuff from them last year.

the lily bulbs were moldy. they did replace them tho. i planted everything (just took the moldy parts off) and most did come up last summer. i'm only seeing 2 growing this year tho - both are from the second (replacement) shipment.

i also bought the 'barbra streisand' rose. it didn't do much last year - grew a little tho. it's DEAD now. i have to double check on the clematis - i think i saw a bit peeping up out of the soil...

i also bought seeds. didn't get around to doing anything with them. that's tonights project. will be a couple of weeks before i know if they're good or not.

as it is, after the moldy bulbs issue AND that there were numerous things that i ordered that they were out of stock on and the website didn't tell me that (i received that info in the confirmation email) and the fact that i was charged for everything - even the out-of-stock items. i would not recommend buying from them. also, their seed prices (even the sale items) seemed high for the number of seeds you get - so that's another reason.

having so many things not growing this year (especially after the mild winter we had here) i'm definitely not ever going to buy from them again.

after seeing your post, i guess the seeds won't be germinating...especially since it's a year later...i'll give it a shot tho.

I ordered some from them and Burpee, didn't have anyproblems except for just a few packets - I double checked after reading this to see if the ones that didn't germinate for me were from Parkseeds and they were. Just emailed them about it. Otherwise - I've always had good results from them.
