@vec very much so Julie have bought alot of different seeds now to do next year had some failures too this year but really pleased with what has come up, my fav has to be the vipers bugloss though I could have a garden filled with that one just love the colours in the flowers and so easy to grow from seed. Just put 3 zinnia lime green in front which I'm hoping look nice before I buy seeds for next year 💚💚
