    Hi. I’ve seeded my last order inside in seed trays. These mushroom looking things shot up over night and don’t look like anything I ordered or like any of the other trays. The soil was an organic mix bought at home Depot. Is this just a baby herb?

      Hi Nicole,
      You are right, those are mushrooms. Actually look like toadstools which are associated with mycorrhizal associations=–makes me feel good about the mix you’re using. The sweet bergamot hasn’t come up yet. Richo
