i tried several methods to get these seeds started but they failed to germinate over two seasons and numerous efforts. northern illinois must just not be suited to this seemingly attractive edible ornamental. We would be happy to replace the package, and we do have growing guides and seed starting guides on our website. Seeds From Italy

It's tough to grow radicchio in Maine …long season required! I grew several varieties in 2013, all in our hoophouse. The very best was the Orchid Red …no mildew problems, and even the smallest one was delicious! I started out wanting to grow them all just for our own use, but then had enough to sell at Farmers Market one day in September! They were a hit!
