Nice Quality seeds

4 out of 5 stars May 14, 2020
the seeds are really nice quality and got good germination rate. I was hoping for all the colors mentioned to flower but I got only orange(90%) and yellow (10%).

Only a few seeds bloomed - probably 5 poppys which were nice but would have liked to see more!
