Burpee seeds

5 posts in this topic

Anyone ever had this problem? Planted burpee broccoli seeds thinned to 10 plants. What grew was 1 broccoli and 9 cauliflower.  Planted and thinned kohlrabi which is what grew except for 1 bid weird kale looking thing. Just wondering if this happens alot im kinda new in this gardening game

not to me it hasn't.......to that extent anyway. that's pretty bad. I have had that happen when I've purchased seed bulk at the local hardware store, never when I bought seeds in  the little packets. and have bought several different brands.

Occasionally I'll get an off-type in some radish packets. A few times over the years in a transplant pack I've had a broccoli plant show up in a 4 pack that was supposed to be cauliflower. Otherwise nothing wholesale like you describe snagfinder.

I thought maybe it was just packaged wrong but what are the odds i got 1 broccoli if that was the case.  Hopefully the kid will eat it.

Can't say for sure how it might've happened. I know a few times over the years someone has received a bag of seed corn or soybeans that were traced back to a poor cleanout at the plant before starting a new variety or batch of seed. One time it was non-GMO corn that wound up in a pallet of Round Up Ready. Was a real mess after the field got sprayed with glyphosate. Fortunately the farmer saved the seed tags so they were able to trace it back and identify the problem. If you still have the seed packet you could contact the company to let them know.

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .

    • How in the world did this advertisement not get zapped?
    • Look great but the page is horrible, anybody figure out the price? The one in the video looks like a buzz bait, do they come in different tails or all the tails come with?  Anybody speak Japanese?
