    I didn't realize I never reviewed this item! This purchase is for a gardening basket that will be in a tricky tray. Signed on to print info for the types of seeds and I need to review! Fast shipping and secure package. Although I won't be the one to plant this time I might be back for more!Llove the idea as it's different from usual items in baskets and who doesn't love flowers and butterflies! No photo taken but balls are good size, so happy about that, and as shown in picture.
