A great surprise!

I had very good germination and planted all of the seedlings. And then promptly forgot about them! They've now started blooming in this past week and I was asked what type of flower they were.... and finally remembered. Very nice, catches the eye!

not happy

Neither flower germinated. I got nothing and am not sure why. Most of the seeds I buy from you are great.
