    Blue Lake Bush Bean germination very high and bears in abundance. Does very well in Jamaica's climate

    Posted by Enna Davis on 17th Feb 2019

    I only buy seeds from Todd's. Best price, excellent seed quality and germination. I plant all my seeds in Jamaica where they bear in abundance. Kale, carrots, beans, cucumber,parsnip, turnip, beets, okra, broccoli and corn. I never had a bad crop of anything

    Exellent plants and beans, disappointed with germination

    Posted by Greg T on 16th Jul 2015

    I planted a "Tom's Seeds" garden this year. Everything (radishes, multiple leaf lettuce varieties, spinach, sugar snap peas, 2 beet varieties, onions, 3 corn varieties, and more) was excellent in terms of germination, healthy plants, and tasty produce, although I do not have corn yet to eat. Unfortunately, these particular beans had perhaps a 60 percent germination rate, and even my fill-in re-planting proved unsatisfactory. I can say that of the seeds that germinated, the plants were vibrant and very productive. The beans are stringless and very "beany" in flavor. My only complaint is that germination was disappointingly low. I mention the other seeds to give context, as I am not going to take the time to 5 star those purchases. Very happy with Tom's Seeds and will order again. This particular batch was disappointing, and I will likely heavily seed next year with the remaining seeds that I purchased.
