Seed is a live product which depends on many important grower skills such as proper
planting time, seed depth, type of soil, watering, light intensity, proper use of fertilizers,
weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, soil conditions, and reasonable weather during
the growing period. These factors are totally out of the sellers control, and germination
and growing results are the buyer's responsibility and risk.
