What are the pros? Good bugs, very pretty

What are the cons? Once done, they're done

Review:

I bought my seeds somewhere else, but I saw all the negative reviews, and felt bad for what is actually a pretty nice plant. If you direct sow the seeds, and provide plenty of water till established, they'll grow. At first, there's only leaves, then suddenly there's a stalk, then suddenly there's a ton of beautiful fairy flowers that attract bees, butterflies and parasitic wasps. If you stay on top of deadheading, you'll get a longer bloom time. If not, then they'll eventually yellow, and if you're not careful, self seed generously. If you have too many come up, they're very easy to pull out. They provide a nice backdrop to more strongly colored flowers, and dry nicely. I mostly grow them for my sister, who enjoys the light and graceful appearance they impart.

Review:

I have ordered a lot of flowers from you to grow for my daughters wedding on July 11th. I planted these in 3 stages and they are all starting to bloom now. I have to order more to make sure they are blooming on the 11th. They are so beautiful and will be a great filler. I am vary pleased with all the flower seeds I have ordered from you.

Review:

I planted these in peat plugs, they grew to about 1/2" and then they died. I had about 20 plugs overall, and none of them made it. I had them in various locations, full sun, dappled shade, shade, nothing mattered. Very disappointed as I like this flower a lot.

Review:

Baby's Breath is a perennial herb native to Europe and Asia. When it escapes cultivation in the U.S. it out-competes native plants. I am disappointed to see it for sale here.

I have this variety in my garden, and I think it's the best looking, and easiest to grow variety there is!! Very nice large heads, and lots of blooms on each stem. All around a very good choice!!! :)
