Grew Well

They took a little longer to grow, but had an amazing yield. Grew well if direct sown in Zone 9a!

They all germinated!

I planted the seeds on February 7. They have all germinated and are now about 1" tall. Looking good at this moment & I'm hoping they will become beautiful flowers for drying & using in my natural medicine chest.
