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!
