Crystal Palace Lobelia

There is not enough seed being put in the packets to generate a full "bunch" of the crystal palace lobelia. Thank heavens I collected my own seed and have a substantial amount in each "plant bunch". I can not recommend this product because of the small amount of seed included in the packet.

Crystal Palace Lobelia

So tiny! Use a magnifying glass to top sow. Needed to buy more than one pack. You could be a little more generous.

Lobelia. Crystal palace

I had great results from all the seeds that I ordered. I started the lobelia seeds indoors as soon as I recieved them. They germinated well on my windowsill. I tried to plant seeds outdoors also but those did not germinate well. But the ones started indoors did well all summer even in high heat. They did not fade in the heat of summer as in other years. As of late Aigust, they were bright and vivid.
