I had 143 seed pots, seeded with Ferry Morse seeds for 2017 including curled parsley, oregano, basil, rainbow coleus, tomatoes, jalapeño peppers, cayenne peppers, etc. I also had old Burpee seeds from 2014, 2015, and 2016 in 63 seed pots. All the seed pots contained Ferry Morse Jiffy seed starter and all were in a cheap plastic green house hooked up to the exhaust heat from my house; its temperature never fell below 65 degrees and often hit 85 degrees. I planted the seeds from early February to mid March. NOT ONE FERRY MORSE SEED GREW, but 51 of the old Burpee seeds did. I now sing the old Dylan song "Ain't gonna Work on Maggie's Farm No More" with the words "ain't gonna plant Ferry Morse no more."
