Burpee's seeds give me very much pleasure because they grow so nice I would rather go out in my garden with any garden tools then go to a Matanee or a party I watch everyday for the little seeds to sprout and later for a new flower face to apear I would have lots of vegetables in my yard if it were large as it is small I enjoy every seed and plant that grows. Before the snow is gone my Crocus are up and the last thing in the fall are the Chrysanthemum next year I am going to grow Water Lillys Cannas Dalias and the Regal Lilly from seeds I find them all in your seed book I love to say to my friends, Yes I raised them all from Burpees seeds they always grow, When it is raining and I cant go out I sit down and study Burpees Catalog Thats why my Friends say to me You know all the flowers by name If I ever get a large yard I will have lots more including a real Lilly pool and early Hot bed to get and early start in spring.
