Review:

I'm not a flower grower so I didn't know what to expect here but these seeds germinated easily, grew up fast and strong, and out of many different flower types I planted at the same time were the first to bloom. The smaller size means I was able to fit a lot into my fairly small flower bed, which was nice because I hate thinning seedlings. My only complaint was every seed produced the same color flower (a deep pink) save for one orange, which has still not even a quarter blossomed yet compared to how far along the rest are. The pinks are gorgeous but I was hoping for more diversity. I will also add that the foliage on the cockscomb has held up perfectly compared to the store bought celosia in the same bed, which has bleached and browned in the sun.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
