I was sent this lovely “all in one flower mix” some time ago now. Promising flowers within six weeks, I was excited to see if it lived up to it’s promises. It contains 16 flower seed varieties with a combination of early and late bloomers. It is so easy to use – all you do is shake it onto weeded and raked soil and then water. I have shaken it in a few different places in my garden but I don’t think even Miracle Gro’s expert Flower Magic could have predicted this unusually cold May! Seeds do need some warmth in order to germinate and so the only shoots I can see are those I planted in pots in a sun trap area of the garden.
For ease of use, I would give this product ten out of ten but check back here in a month or so to see if we have had enough sunlight for the actual flowers. I am excited, anyway! Roll on summer.
Several months on and we are in mid August. The pots came up swiftly once we were blessed with some sun, and lasted for about a month before wilting. I planted some in the garden and they did not appear to grow, but here is a picture of some growing ones in a hanging basket:
My honest opinion? I think that the flowers were lovely, delicate but beautiful and grew wonderfully in pots. However, for the price, I think that the same effect could be had with some seeds and ordinary compost.
