    Wow! They haven't bloomed yet, but the greenery is huge!! Can't wait for the flowers!

    Great little sunflowers!

    To start with,your seeds are very reasonably priced, postage costs are wonderful compared to other companies. Your seed germination is always great,the plants grow well and at the end of the season I have some special treats for the birds in my back yard. All in all your products are always most satisfactory.
