Very hardy. Went into a weedy, poor soil, and shady area. Profusely bloomed anyway.

Great, They stand behind their products and are very knowledgeable about the plants and seeds that they sell.

Trouble with my seeds

It was great but my seed didn't grow

HI Janice, I am sorry your Cool Wave Berries n Cream did not grow. Did they not germinate or did not grow once they sprouted? We do have a 90 day guarantee on the germination of our seeds. Thank You - Happy Gardening! Deby

Pretty Pansies

These pansies are thriving. I got 100% germination, and they are blooming just like in the photo. They have a pleasant fragrance and are lovely tucked under boxwoods in pots.

Beautiful for the winter garden!

These seeds are tiny and I tried planting just a couple. They sprouted just fine, were slow to start, but did well in the garden and didn't suffer any shock from transplanting. Now they're blooming, and they look great. They make small mounds, maybe 3-4" across, and the flowers grow on short stems. The colors are vibrant. I'm really looking forward to having these bloom through the winter (in zone 10b over here).
