Comments about Love in a Mist Seeds Miss Jekyll:

we used these seeds in a flower garden where we distribute a large variety of flowers. They didn't seem to thrive as well as some others, but produced lovely colors. Perhaps they had too much competition from the taller varieties.

          Had no issue with purchase and delivery. My seeds were 95% white and few blues. After a couple of weeks, pulled all of them and planted something else.

          Comments about Love in a Mist Seeds Miss Jekyll:

          These are lovely flowers that we've grown in other states. After the flowers bloom, they form seed pods that add interest to your garden. Lovely pastel color. Very, very nice!
