Maximum return for no real effort - my kind of product!
on 20 April 2013
I bought this to compliment a whole host of meadow and wild flowers that I have been growing from seed. This product appealed to me because it contains everything you need for four square metres of beautiful flowers, all with the absolute minimum of personal effort. A bit of light weeding before taking the lid off and you're away. Even in the commercial for this stuff, it's just a whole lot of folk standing around in their gardens gazing lovingly at the flowers and looking terribly pleased with themselves. That sounded like a look I could carry off.
The product is formulated to just come straight out of the container - you don't even have to shake the thing. You do have to water the seeds quite a lot, but I've found a way of doing that from the confort of my swing chair so even that isn't labour intensive. I sprinkling my seeds at the beginning of April, on the first day it was safe to leave the house without an overcoat and a hat and glove combo, and they are already thriving. When you sow the seeds, it is important to check that the actual small pellets of plant food are evenly spread out, as that obviously helps to ensure an even coverage of flowers.
I will be buying more Flower Magic, as I am really impressed with the product and the thinking behind it. I'm also impressed that such a spectacular lack of effort on my part could lead to such phenomenal results!
