Geranium, Summer Showers Mix is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6/10 germination I read the reviews that said that the germination rate was not very good. I live in Hawaii so I am not able to order plants so I thought I would give these seeds a try. So glad I did! I had 6 out of the 10 seeds germinate. They are a very slow grower but I am hoping that with the temperate climate here, they will be a long-lived perennial. They are blooming and the color is very true to the photos. Mahalo!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Had great hopes but...... I was really looking forward to these being a part of my garden this year. I started these indoors and under lights. They germinated pretty well. I'd say only 2 of the 12 I planted didn't take. They have now been outside for about 2+ months. Only ONE of my plants bloomed a flower. That's it. All I have is green plants. My other geraniums I planted from Burpee seeds are blooming very well. Pretty disappointed as I spent a lot of money this year on new planters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique Geranium Very good germination rate (7/10 seeds are now mature and in the flower planters). Slow growth at the beginning but now taking off (mid-July). Flowers and foliage are very pretty. I hope that the flowers get more dense as the summer progresses.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad luck with these this year (2017) I have grown these from seeds for the past two years. This year's seeds germinated poorly (about 50% of them), and none of the plants that did germinate ever grew to the point that I could actually plant them. I was very disappointed because I absolutely love these flowers. They are beautiful, and they don't require much care or water. They are hard to find at greenhouses, so I've been relying on growing them myself. I will try one more time next year. I cannot recommend to friends that they buy the seeds, but I can recommend that they buy the plants when they can find them (generally in hanging baskets).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Flowers, poor germination but worth it i bought these and had very poor germination rate however I am buying these again. I am a somewhat newish gardener so that may explain part of it. These flowers are strong and the plant itself was bigger than i anticipated. Once transplanted outdoors they required very little maintenance. The beautiful flowers spilled off my porch with a marvelous display. i had many compliments on this and the few that germinated grew very big. i believe i only had 6 after all was said and done from one seed packet.. i only knock one of the stars because of germination. This is wonderful for over the railing displays and hanging baskets. They did not droop over but rather "fanned" out in a wonderful display. I did have them on a porch with good morning light. I am in zone 7b in North Georgia.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed - twice!! I bought 2 packets of ten seeds last growing season (2015) and none of them germinated. I was willing to try them again this year (2016) so I ordered 2 more packets of seeds. Out of 20 seeds planted, only 3 have germinated. They were started indoors, under lights, in a Burpee seed starter kit so I have no idea why the success rate is so poor. I have seen these available in a few garden centers in hanging baskets and I think they are lovely but given the expense, I'm not willing to try these again since there are so many other pretty flowers that are much easier to grow. If I could give zero stars, I would.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I did not have any problems with germination, probably over 90% seeds germinated. The plants grew very nicely and looked beautiful in combination with petunias. However, I wish that they have more blooms.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Germination Fair There were only about 10 seeds in the packet. It would help if the number of seeds and germination percentage were printed on the catalogue info. I had only 3 seeds germinate.
