Every year I sow seeds to produce enough plants to fill about 35 10 ltr pots. Simple enough affair. Looking for some alternatives that are well proven. The requirements are, colourful, easy to grow from seed(have propagator), low growing, wind tolerant, and most importantly are repulsive to rabbits. any ideas Question
