2021 seeds

It’s still a little early to judge the vegetables and flowers, but I have started many of your seeds inside and almost all the seeds have germninated well. The only exceptions were the Non-stop Begonia seeds which failed to germinate at all.

Hi Peter, I am sorry for the poor germination on the Non Stop Begonia. We do have a 90 day guarantee on germination. Unfortunately we are sold out of the Non Stop. We do have Dragon wing Pink left if you would like me to send a packet for you to Thank you again or I can refund your account. Thank you for your patience. Deby

Giant Zinnia mix

We purchased these giant zinnias last year 2020 and every seed sprouted into a beautiful plant of multiple flowers. These flowers were so colorful and perfect for cut flowers in vases. We have them on our list for 2021, GREAT PURCHASE!

Zinnias

My shopping experience was very good considering the times. Many of my gardening friends had difficulty finding seeds. Where as I received most of my order. I just picked my first zinnias 3 days ago. They are great cut flowers and brighten up any space.
