We grow standards and mini's - some florists seldom buy mini's and other florists use a lot of them.
They grow well - just as the standards, and often there are more flowers per plant than the standards, which helps make up for their lower price at the markets.
We only have about 8 colours of mini's - which seems to be enough for our small operation.
They are good to pick - most grow strong with tall stems. We do have two varieties that are not so wonderful and the stems tend to be short or wobbly - but all in all it was a good investment to put them in.
