    Wonderful seeds! I had read that Costmary was really finicky to start from seed so I asked about that before ordering and was assured that that was due to seed quality depending on the source, not the plant itself, and that I should have no problem with the seed from Strictly Medicinal. It was true! The seeds have come up looking great, still seedlings at this point but I’m excited to watch them grow and hopefully make some ale and dry some of the leaves for bookmarks. As always from you, the seeds are of great quality! Thank you!!
