Celosia- Forest FireCelosia- Forest Fire

I bought a packet of Celosia Forest Fire seeds after seeing some mature plants in a nursery, and it was great to see these seeds germinate after just a few days. Now I have too many seedlings to pot up, but am very happy with the germination rates of these and also other seeds I've bought from this site.
