LARGE PACKET

Annuals, biennials and perennials. Even if your grandmother didn’t have a green thumb, this mix will evoke images of the simpler, less hurried time in which she lived. An old-fashioned “cutting garden” was often no more than a corner of the vegetable garden where a few flower seeds were tossed — their lovely, cheerful blossoms were a bonus after the hard work of sowing, watering, weeding, and harvesting.
