Great Germination

5 out of 5 stars Jun 22, 2021
I was a little worried when i received only a few seeds but after sowing 10 in seed starter under grow lights the germination rate was great- 9 out of 10 grew very quickly. I started these late so might not get any blooms this year but so far they're doing well in my garden.

There were supposed to be 15 seeds in the packet, mine only had 12! Of the 12 seeds only three sprouted, and only two seedlings survived and grew. Hoping they'll come back this spring and possibly bloom.

I started these inside and planted them out in a planter on my sunny back patio. They took off quickly and all have bloomed beautifully. I even managed to get mixed colors of rose, gold, and white. This year has been a bummer in my vegetable garden but these flowers are making up for it during this heat and drought in central Texas.
