Growing: Water seedlings until they become established. Since they prefer moist or wet soil, these plants can tolerate short periods of flooding; they can also adapt to slightly drier soil. This plant attracts bees and butterflies, and readily spreads by rhizomes ad reseeding.

All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.
