    I bought 3 varieties of scabiosa from TGW. Most of the Ping Pong and Fire King seeds germinated for me and are looking great so far. Very happy with these! The Blue Cockade did not perform well at all. Only 4 of the 50 seeds germinated. This is my first year starting cool flowers from seed, so it could be user error. But of the scabiosa seed purchased from TGW and Johnny’s, Blue Cockade are the only disappointment. I’m excited to have so many Ping Pong seedlings and seed left over for a spring sowing!
