Better Market

Before starting a new season for most gardeners again true there is a problem where you can buy the seeds?. And so it was certainly seed quality. It seems that the time had passed dashing 90's and the market has become more or less civilized. But no – no, yes you will sell a pig in a poke. Specificity of the purchase of seeds and seedlings have is that you really buy a cat in a bag.

After all, most of us are not endowed with the ability clairvoyant and can not say what will grow from seeds purchased in the market. Go far beyond the example is not necessary. For example, once 15 years ago we bought a seedling pears on the market, as it is assured by the seller. However, it took a long age in order to realize that instead of pears grown unvaccinated apple-savage. Of course we are for it to merchants do not take offense. Apples from the apple tree, although not large, but they have an amazing property – they absolutely do not deteriorate and are stored for a long time. But however, we did not get what they wanted.

From the seeds the same story. Today they are sold in bright bags. They are painted with beautiful vegetables, which are supposed to have you as a result grow. But often, instead of the declared and drawn Nantes carrots for example, you sell the seeds of a plantain or other weeds. This is a very common way of cheating.
