I LOVE YOUR SEEDS!! Everything I ordered in this order and the "Water wise Mix" I ordered have all grown beautifully. I've been making notes all summer and will re-order most of the seeds, earlier in January, however. The Morning Glories and China Asters are particularly beautiful, still blooming and hardy, healthy plants. Thank you for a dependable, natural source of seeds for a devoted Colorado Master Gardener!

I started these indoors in early spring and moved them outside too early so my seedlings died, but I tried again in early summer and they are now blooming. I'm going to plant more next year and cover my fence with these beautiful vines!

I am in zone 8b so it gets really hot in south Texas. This vine is lovely and long and the deer have ignored it. I started it in a 4 inch pot and transplanted it successfully in the spring. I have given it regular flower food and compost. But I have seen only a few flowers all season! I was hoping for a better show. Did I miss something in its care?

Owner Response: Adriana, I would hold off on adding compost which could be high in nitrogen, feeding green growth instead of flowers. Continue with the flower food and see if any nutrient imbalance is corrected.

Great old fashioned annual

This is one of the easiest container flowers. Plant it after last frost and let it be- keep it watered but not wet and away it goes. We have had a very dry summer and this is so pretty and doing great.
