Yes this is my flower bed around the portch. I had been sooo disappointed about the the flowers not coming up. The package had said 6 weeks and then you would see them blooming, well it took about a month and half! But they are started now and are coming up just fine. I guess it just matters on where you plant them because next to the portch; the ground stays cooler cause of the cement. Great thought!! If i would have only thought of that before hand. O well it all worked out great!
