Hi There,

I tried growing Camelina seed last year and so did a farmer friend. We tried in the field and in the greenhouse but none of it germinated. We got the seed from Scratch and Peck. Is your seed from elsewhere? I would like to try it again if your seed source is different.

Welcome north-to-west neighbor, to the Earth Gardens network!

 If you know some seed-savers in BC, you might want to pass the word to have them attend our 4th annual Community Seed Day & Seed Swap on Jan 29th in Bellingham - http://transitionwhatcom.ning.com/events/community-seed-day-seed-swap   We are "Getting Seeds Into The Hands of the People!".
