Growing flowers is my hobby. 
My daily work keeps me confined inside so this hobby gives me health as well as pleasure as I get the needed exercise tending my flowers and vegetable gardens.

Any doubt as to the existence of a supreme being is dispelled by watching the development of a seed into a plant and then into bloom. 

Man cannot put life into a seed, but he can choose the best of seeds and in that respect I find that Burpee leads.

As I raise flowers and vegetables mainly for pleasure an extra fine specimen adds greatly to that pleasure and I find that the really fine specimens come from Burpee's seeds. 

I have numerous enquiries as to where I get my seeds and am always glad to recommend Burpee knowing a trial will convince that their seeds equal and and far outclass most seeds offered for sale. But little difference in price but what a difference in results.
