I recommend this product
Seeds I had purchased from your company.

I do appreciate the wonderful seeds you have sent me; however, I was ill during the Spring and early Summer months where I couldn't plant my seeds. Would these seeds be ok to plant next Summer in June outside? The flowers are so beautiful!!! Also, I start the petunias and pansy seeds indoors earlier for Summer blooms in my garden. I'm hoping the seeds will still have good quality by then. Please respond when you are able to. Thank you!!!

Beautiful variety

This variety just started blooming this morning. It is a lot more delicate and striking than your average pink cosmos. It’s also slightly smaller.
