At the price you can buy them, why waste your time growing them, they don't make very good bedding plants because they get very big and heavy than have large open holes in them.

By the time you buy the soil, fabric, drip system, pots, seeds, your time and water- your better off buying them at walmart

i am growing them to sell next fall, i have the pots and a drip system and the fabric, i have a the compost soil mix too. all i really need is the seeds and any tips that will help me so i don't have to learn when they are growing and ruin them all. i know you are supposed to keep them at 4" till July.
