Sad

This packet did not meet our expectation for flowering plant.

Amazing color and continuous blooms

5 out of 5 stars Oct 14, 2019
I wasn't expecting much from the seed packet and I was pleasantly surprised. Particularly by the zinnias - their color and brilliance can be seen by 100 yards away across the backyard and I'm on the website in order to buy more. I'm not sure how the other customer experience the negative review but we have been thrilled with what came out of this little seed packet. The monarchs are also enjoying it!

Blown away by these flowers!

5 out of 5 stars Apr 15, 2020
These flowers were spectacular, I've never had such great success and massive blooms from other seed packets. I highly recommend these and will be buying them again year after year. If only I could post a picture of how beautifully these grew, and the butterflies and bees they attracted!

I successfully grew this mix and it was beautiful. It has a really pretty variety, especially the flowering tobacco.

Extremely Satisfied

I planted half the packet in a large size flower pot at the end of March. The flowers are so big and I've even thinned out about 6 basil and given some as gifts to friends and family. I love this mix and I will plant it every year!

Bees Galore!

I am so pleased with this packet of seeds! I planted one whole raised bed and had seeds left over to share. This packet has many varieties that I've never seen or grown before. Every time I look at this little garden I see several bees, which were becoming scare in my garden. Thanks for such a high quality product. This is my first time planting Botanical Interests seeds and I'll definitely be using them again.

DID NOT GERMINATE

1 out of 5 stars Nov 18, 2020
I had great success with this mix a few years ago. However this year's mix (which was labelled as being for 2021) had a very low germination rate and what did grow was stunted. (This was planted in the same location as the previous mix.) Very disappointing.
Lisette Ellis from NM
Owner Response: Hi Lisette, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We are sorry you experienced poor germination with this flower mix. Rest assured that our seeds are tested frequently by a third-party laboratory to ensure germination rates exceed both federal and our own standards. A customer service agent will be contacting you to help. As for stunted growth, a soil test or amendment may be in order. After seeds germinate their performance is dependent upon their environment because they utilize soil nutrients, water, and sunlight to create their own food. As we use an area and harvest vegetables or remove plants we also remove the nutrients the plants take up, depleting the soil over time. Often an inch or so of compost can perk your soil back up. Happy gardening!

Bees everywhere!

Terrific mix! I get a lot of compliments from my neighbors because of the flowers and my bees are all over them.

Enjoying

Not all seed have produced; now seeing 1 sunflower appearing & have had violet & some aster type blooms
Marie from NJ
Owner Response: Hi Marie, We hope you find even more enjoyment from this flower mix as the season progresses. We design these mixes to bloom all growing season so you will see more diversity as the season goes on, rather than everything blooming at once and petering out. Happy gardening!
