Miracle Grow seeds

It's a 1kg tub which has seeds, coir and a feed and you 'shake n sow' in your borders and then according to their tv advert you'll have lovely flowers?

This may be a silly question but do they say on the labels if they are the type that sends out shoots? We want to plant one in a bed but need something that'll grow tall and bushy.

Has anyone bought one of these 'shake n sow' tubs? Curious as to what types of flowers are included - assume they're all annuals (but that they may self sow if leave to go to seed). Need a nice variety of flowers for a few new borders and these 'appear' to be a good idea (know I could buy seeds on their own but anything which might help them grow must be a good thing)

Hi both - ill check next time I'm out there for life under the bark Main reason I cut it back was due to it completely covering the arch and wasn't too sure how it'd be if I didn't (for flowers)

I cut my honeysuckles back when it said they should be but think the really harsh weather we've had have killed them off as there's no sign of life.

Therefore any suggestions of a climber (to go over a wire arch) to replace them? Ideally something fragrant as you walk through the arch you smell it, but something that will grow quick ove summer, was wondering about a Passion Flower?

Assume that all climbers need to be cut back each year and that theres no evergreen climber that you don't cut back?
