Great germination from the seeds i received

2 October 2019
I was worried after reading other reviews that this would be difficult but i have much more stubborn seeds than these Perilla. As advised by the seedcollection I sowed as soon as they arrived 3/9, germinated 19/9 and I have now begun pricking out on 2/10 from 78 seedlings (more than i have space for), from a standard packet of 100 seeds. Looking forward to tasting greens later on. Maybe i will order some red Perilla too. Hard to give a star rating on taste because i have no adukt plants yet, but on viability it can have 4*

low germination. bugs in northern nsw love them!

16 January 2019
about 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.
