      Thank you for the review. We are sorry you had trouble with germination of these seeds. This is by far our most popular bean seed, having sold hundreds of packs of this seed this year, and we have not had any other complaints with germination, so not sure what went wrong? We are happy to refund you for this seed, and thank you for your feedback. God bless!
