GratifyingThis one is a cinch. Started indoors in Jiffy peat pots under standard UV light at six inches for sixteen hours per day. Every seed germinated. Flowers grow to about two feet and add a casual, old time flavor to the garden. Dried they graced our mantle through Christmas before fading. Highly recommended especially for beginners.
