    I tried sprouting spices from my cabinet. It didn’t work. Can you order viable sesame seeds or peppercorns?

    • jesse says:

      Anything from your spice cabinet is unlikely to be a viable seed – they’ve typically been dried well beyond the point of being able to sprout. As far as peppercorns and sesame seeds in particular, both come from tropical plants that do not grow in this region and, as far as I’m aware, do not make good house plants, so there are not really any options for growing them yourself here in Colorado. I’ve never seen either one available from any seed vendors or seed catalogs.

    Looking for fresh dwarf calamonsi seeds. Can you help?

    • jesse says:

      We can only special order seeds from the seed companies listed in the article. None of those companies carry calamonsi (aka calamondin) seed, likely because citrus, when grown from seed, do not reliably grow a plant that will produce the same fruit as the plant from which the seed came, much like apples. We do, however, carry calamondin plants, and they make excellent fruiting houseplants!
