What Burpees seeds have done for me.

As I walked through our garden to gather the vegetables for dinner, I was greeted by the dewy fragrance of the flowers and felt elated over the prospects of such bounteousness of flower, fruit and vegetable.

Good seeds are one of the most important requirements toward a successful garden, and a good garden is a life saver.

What a satisfaction to sow seeds and see them come peeping and pushing through the ground under the most trying conditions, to bring forth flowers of the most beautiful markings or splendid vegetables.

In planning my garden in early spring my idea is to buy seeds from the seed house which endeavors to produce the best. Many surprises are mine as the buds unfold. Am I delighted? Yes. I will relate my experience with a package of mixed Cosmos seed some few years ago which also typfies many other kinds of mixed seed packets.
