seed germination

I am very happy with the service from Pinetree. My seed order was promptly filled. All the zinnia, cosmos and snap dragon seeds had 100% germination. I can't wait for the blooms to appear. Unfortunately I only had 25-30% germination for the asters, Cerinthe purple belle and Rubeckia. I am not faulting the seeds.....it may be the crazy weather that we had in New York. I look forward to ordering seeds again in the future.

Great germination!

Started these in pots in the greenhouse, and they’re huge, full of buds, I need to get them planted out! Can’t wait to see them flower. �
