    Quite often, when I order seeds online, I get an additional packet of seeds that I never asked for. I planted several of them two years ago to give them a chance but they have grown into boring spikes of leaves and never looked very interesting, all that effort, water, and space, wasted, for me.

    Depends on what they are, but mostly don't bother, very often nothing I'm interested in.
    Don't know why they do it?
