low germination. bugs in northern nsw love them!16 January 2019about 6 in the packet germinated. of these only one made it. 4 died before they got away and 1 got totally decimated by bugs. the one that survived has an amazing aroma - so hopefully I can get some seeds from it and expand my crop.
Great perilla20 July 2018Took a while to germinate but when it did, it was great!
none of the seed germinated26 January 2018I purchased this perilla seeds last year and none of them germinated. I read online that you need to soak them in water over night and then plant them so i'm trying again. hopefully it works this time.
