Hello Debbie. Well unfortunately I believe you have been subjected to one of those nasty on-line scams. There are way too many of them… What you get are typically either seeds from some other plant or weed or in some cases just some hard clumps of root matter. Soak them in a glass of water over night. If the seeds disappear and all that is left is some grainy material and muddy water, well you know which one you got. Here is a link to some information on these scams: [1]
