Started seeds in pots and they just germinated. Hope to have success with this in Texas. They are one of my favorite garden go to plants and I miss having them.
Seeds had a very high germination rate, plants are already well established after a couple of months.
The seeds that sprouted had very few blooms.
All the seeds were planted and sprouted.
Started them right away and have many many sprouts can’t wait to transplant them to the flower garden
