Seed

Growing your own plants from seed is the most economical way to add natives to your home. Before you get started, one of the most important things to know about the seeds of wild plants is that many have built-in dormancy mechanisms that prevent the seed from germinating. In nature, this prevents a population of plants from germinating all at once, before killing frosts, or in times of drought. To propagate native plants, a gardener must break this dormancy before seed will grow.SEEDS: We only sell quality seeds that we have personally tested that resulted in high germination rates. However, because not all growers will germinate seeds the same way we do, we cannot offer a guarantee on seed germination. Once seeds leave our nursery, it is out of our control on how the seed is handled. Therefore, we do not accept returns or offer refunds on seeds that do not germinate. We do offer gardening advice, please ask for help before germinating your seeds! If your seeds are damaged during shipment, please contact us with pictures of the damage and we would be happy to offer a replacement. Returns will be accepted for up to 7 days for buyers who change their mind about the seeds that they ordered. To qualify for a refund or replacement, we must receive all seeds in the original packaging, the buyer is responsible for the return shipping. If a return is received that does not meet the above mentioned requirements, a refund/replacement will not be issued. Palm Beach Medicinal Herbs reserves the right to refuse any return or deny any refund for any reason.
