Received these seeds among several others from Bountiful Gardens in January. Have had great success germinating all of them. This sorrel had very close to 100 percent germ. starting under growlights at about 70F.
I planted French Sorrel a year ago last spring. I let it grow without any harvest the first season. Then it survived an almost record cold winter --9 degrees was our coldest temp--and flourished all spring, summer and fall of 2014. Ive had no bug problems, it has handled the hot and humid Alabama summer in a full sun location. I have learned that French Sorrel soup is delicious!
