Easiest Seeds to Grow

I am not sure how these seeds could ever be rated one star. They are by far among the easiest seeds to grow. Botanical Interests provides perhaps the most thorough sowing instructions of any seed company out there. I have been growing these seeds for years. All you need to do is take a handful, broadcast them, water them and wait a week for them to come up. By the end of the season, you will be blessed with tall stems adorned with non stop flowers. Many pollinators will appreciate their presence and as an added bonus, they don't need a ton of water to thrive. For anyone on the fence as to whether to order from Botanical Interests, don't be. I have been buying from them for years and always have nearly 100% germination. Just follow the instructions and you cannot go wrong.
