Hard to review when it hasn’t arrived
This is an excellent product. Have done a 1/2 acre. Already sprouting up. Look forward to ground cover and Spring planting

I started the seeds shortly after they arrived. They are doing. Quite well. Not everyone came up, but they still could. I'm pleased. Can't wait to see them in a vase.
Thank you for your review, Madelon! We're happy to hear you're pleased with the results of your Celosia Seed purchase. These require light to germinate so covering them very lightly with soil is recommended for the best germination. We hope you'll enjoy seeing them in a vase soon. Thanks again for choosing our seed.
I've been an organic gardener for a long time and have grown just about everything.
I find it hard to believe the seed was bad so I can only assume I did something wrong.
Hi Nick, We are so sorry you had a hard time germinating these seeds. Celosia germinate best when the soil temperature is between 70-80 degrees F and also require light for successful germination. Our seeds are tested to ensure germination exceeds industry standards. We’ll be in touch soon to see how we can help. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.
