    Please tell me where I can find Shepherd’s purse locally in San Jose area. I tried to plant them through seeds from China, but no luck. I still have some seeds (4 -5 years old). How do I plant them? Your advise is highly appreciated. Many Thanks and Happy Spring.


  2. Sorry I really don’t know where to find Shepherd’s purse in San Jose area.
    You might give those 4-5 years old seeds a try, plant them in a raised bed or a special area where you watch them growing intensively and learn the difference between weeds and shepherd’s purse.
    Good luck!
