I will not purchase the Bengal Rose Frost Aster again for two reasons. The first being that I only had a 30% germination rate and second I only received 15 seeds when the package clearly states there are 25. Fifteen seeds for $4.00 and a poor germination rate is not worth it. I purchased these seeds from my local nursery. I am writing a review because I believe buyers should be aware and make informed decisions. On the positive note the packaging was very nice. I like how the seeds come in a little foil pouch, I am looking forward to the flowers! Maybe then I'll believe they are worth the cost. If so, I'll update my review.
