Hard to growBy: customer review from 26/02/2014 on 22 March 2016Not sure if it's the quality of the seed or it's just naturally hard to grow, still no sprouts after planting it for 3 weeks.
6/10By: customer review from 24/03/2014 on 22 March 2016The early germination rate is moderate and the plants appear healthy and but growing slowly.
