Johnny's Seeds - packet sizes
I was looking in the Johnny's Seeds catalog at the Cosmos Sensations mix. I've had good luck with them in the past, they tend to fit in nice with other plants, and they're highlighted as an easy grower.
I noticed that the description says 4,300 seeds/oz. You can buy 50 seeds for $2.75 or 1/2 OZ for $5.20. I did a double take when I saw that. Is that 2,150 seeds for $5.20? It seems to me that the choice is between the 1/2 OZ at 4.1 seeds/penny, and the 50 seeds at .19 seeds/penny. Am I reading this correctly?
I saw a few other seed sets that also have a major jump in value between the lowest price packet and a relatively small increase in price. I admit 2150 seeds may be a lot more then I really need, but 50 may be less then I need when taking into account my germination success rates, and I can save some for next year.
