THEIR SEED PACKETS NEVER FAIL

I have purchased various seed packets from growOrganic and they have always yielded abundant flowers and veggies. Last year I broadcast the Bachelor Button seeds in a bare area of my garden and within a sort period of time I had waist high VERY healthy plants filled with beautiful flowers. Every neighbor stopped to admire them and left with a little bouquet to take home!

the most prolific, vibrant blue

I planted these bachelor buttons a year ago from seeds using PV organic potting soil and let them grow all summer in the greenhouse. I transplanted them to the ground last fall. This spring around the first of May they started to bud up. By the first of June the plant was full off beautiful vibrant blue blossoms and has not stopped flowering. It is a magnificient addition to my wildflower garden. I only water once a week. Bees seem to love them as well
