Très bonne semence.

En ce moment, elle pousse très bien en semis et je suis très contente. Dans quelque semaine, ils iront en terre et j’ai hâte de les voir dehors. Merci pour tout Julie et j’adore toutes les graines et elles poussent toutes très bien. Chapeau! Car ce n’est pas donné partout, j’en sais quelque chose, croyez moi.
