love the smell!

I start them indoors and they germinate well, I transplanted them against a west facing foundation, a very hot, sunny spot.. they petered out during the hottest part of summer but came back when it started cooling down a bit.Will put them somewhere else this year. They've been great in the past in not such a hot area.I'm still a fan, just wrong placement last year.

Solid performer, lovely fragrance

I chose this to attract beneficial insects, enjoy fragrance, and bloom continuously. My experience. Fragrance like honey, fast growing, reseeds, rebloom after deadheading, heat tolerant. Lovely plant and my coworkers want it now too!

Very good germination but slow grower

I started these seeds indoors in early April and since transplanting the seedlings in early June they've grown very little in spite of regular watering and fertilizing. Some of the seedlings have started blooming but the plants are so small that the flowers are not showy at all. I grew Alyssum from plants purchased at a garden center last year and they were very fast growers becoming good-sized bushy plants loaded with flowers until frost killed them. These seedlings started from seed are a poor comparison to last year's plants. I'm hoping these seedlings start to take off but here it is mid-July and so far they've been a disappointment.

Great variety

All orders arrive when expected. All are packaged well. I love their offers. I am always challenged to try new vegetables and new flowers. The descriptions on their internet site are thorough and very useful. Since I live in the humid desert next to the Sea of Cortez, I'm always happy to learn whether something will do well in this environment. I have been a customer for at least 30 years and have never ever had a problem or been disappointed.
