  1. I love Baker Creek and can’t resist ordering every year for the last few years. Such selection and variety!! But I wonder why their seeds are only good for the year they are sold in, less than twelve months?! And they do not do well after expiry, tested and disappointed. Will continue to order from them, is still worth it, they are fab!!
    What a great site you have here. Lovely to have a visit from you to me and I will enjoy your future posts! Where are you based? Enjoy your weekend wherever you are.
