I had a ton of false nettle last year I saved all the seeds but when I opened the seed bag the smell of dusty mold was strong I could see no mold but the seeds are so fine and I let them dry out really good is this normal smell for these seeds I know they a great butterfly draw just wonder if anyone else had this problem.Im trying to see it they will germinate I have like 2 zippy bags full of these seeds hate to throw them out .

RE: False nettle Question?

you might as well try planting them. Try some in a pot so you can keep a close eye on them. That should give you a better answer than any of us could :)

RE: Falsenettle Queastion?

Did just that nothing yet but maybe falsenettle seeds just smell musky the are tiny and have dust might just be the dust from them .

RE: Falsenettle Queastion?

Woot my falsenettle has sprouted its tiny seedlings so the seeds do smell terriable but work great. hehehe
Might seem silly but hope others wont throw there seeds out for the smell they just stink .

Here is a link that might be useful: dont throw that away 1#
