What are the pros? Easy germination, solid growth
What are the cons? Pests of all kinds love it
These germinate very quickly, within 1-2 days. They handle transplanting well. While transplanting one, i even ripped half its roots off and it survived. They're supposedly deer-resistant. They supposedly flower in brutal hot months of august-september, when most things are done.
Pests, pests, pests. These have had leaf miners repeatedly, beetles, and mammals are eating tons of the foliage. Foliage is edible, not a huge surprise, but im not sure if theyll survive. The mammals show little interest til the plants are about 6-8 inches tall, but mammals eat a fair amount, so on a six-inch plant it's drastic.
One caveat. I'm only 2 months into growing them. I'm assuming they're going to survive the being-eaten (theyre a weed, their leaf-stubs should be enough foliage) and flower properly. If they dont flower right, this will not have been worth
