I’ve calculated that for less than $20 you can have a garden full of these 5 beautiful plants. All you have to do is buy the seeds (generally less than $4/ packet - which contains at least a few hundred seeds) and sow them outside, straight into the dirt, right now. These guys all like this kind of autumnal drop-and-go treatment. So easy – Huge Reward.
