I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

Blanket Flower Seed
Blanket FlowerGaillardia Aristata
Approx. 300 seeds per pkg or 1 gram.
Blanketflower can be directly seeded into your flower garden, or seeded indoors for transplanting later. If you reside in a warmer climate, you can plant them in the fall, and they will most likely bloom the first spring. For colder areas, expect a bloom in the second spring. Needs full sun.
Sow Blanketflower seeds early in the season and cover lightly with 1/8" of fine garden or potting soil. Or, broadcast spread them over an area, and lightly rake them into the soil. Ideal plant spacing is 14" -16". Thin or transplant seedlings, if needed, when they reach 2". They will tolerate a little crowding. Perfect for the lazy gardener, once established, these are hardy plants!
Makes a great cut arrangement. We put them in antique blue Philips Magnesia bottles because their colors pop against the blue glass.
