such a small mount of seeds. Doesn't seem worth the effort of the packaging

2 out of 5 stars Mar 16, 2022
The packaging is so beautiful. What a disappointment and a waste of packaging when such a small amount is contained within. I was enticed by the price, but feel like a fool that I fell for the gimmick. I would rather pay mor for a substantial amount of seeds then b

Owner Response: Hi Michele, We are sorry you were disappointed by the 150 mg (about 140 seeds) packet. In case it is helpful you can find seed count estimates on product pages like these and also in the catalog (available in digital or print). We do our best to balance price and provide enough but not too much seed for a gardener to use in a season or two. Happy gardening!

Wonderful retuirning wildflower

Excited to find seeds for a blue coneflower! Planted in front garden two years ago with great germination and growth. Neighbors stop to ask what the pretty blue flowering plant is! Still blooming in 90 degree late spring Central Texas temperatures. Had two plants come up this year from seed from last year's plants.
