Wow, eastern peregrine, that's quite a list. Got a kick out of the 19-year old catnip sprouting. I think the oldest seed I had was Great White tomato I got from Trudi six or seven years ago. Was down to the final three seeds and one of the three sprouted. That's nearly as good as the SuperSauce, which I bought new from Burpee this year. Only three of six sprouted and they're not doing as well as my other varieties. Maybe it's a fussy hybrid. The heirloom types are all doing great, pretty much 100 percent germination and they're all in jugs in the same location as the supersauce.
