Review By MonCher

Wonderful basil plant

This is a nice compact basil that grows nicely in the smaller AeroGardens. I like the small leaves, too. Very attractive plant.
I agree with the review by Charles Stallard. I, too, have noticed how the well known, seed companies routinely sell micro-packs of 10 seeds for an average price of $6.95/pk!
That is what sent me in search of reputable seed companies who sell seeds at an affordable price & options for the size.
I emailed Burpee & asked why they didn't offer choices on the seed package, ie packet, 1 oz, 1/4 lb, etc. Their response was "we sell to the home gardener, not farmers". To which I replied, "I AM a home gardener who simply wants to buy more than 10 seeds without paying $6+ per 10 seeds!!!".
I am so happy to have found Eden seeds. I have purchased many seeds from Eden & so far everything I've planted has germinated with absolutely no problems. Please Eden, stay as you are. Keep offering options on the size of seed package. You are my favorite seed resource!

Seed Supplier Meets My Needs

prices and decrease the number of seeds in a packet. I have searched for one that has reasonable prices and includes enough seeds to meet my gardening needs, i.e., more than 5-10 seeds per pack. Eden Seeds has proven to be that company. Their stock is fresh and germinates at the rate you would expect fresh seeds to do so. One company sold me Taxi Tomato seeds that had eight seeds in the package and of which only two germinated....obviously old seed. This has become the norm in my experience. Eden Seeds is the exception and I will stick with them unless they later become like most of the others.
