    Wildflower Mix

    Putting down a bag of Burpee's Cutting Wildflower mix. Perrenial blend of 16-18 flowers. Here is the corner "plot" of our yard that previously was a catch all for extra dirt, dead flower pots and etc. Should be interesting come September.

    Good luck! It does take a few years for these wildflowers to get well established, if they are the perennial type.

    If they survive the deer. That's ok, no hurries.

    The germinating sprouts started appearing in less than 3 days.

    Deer do love the sprouts... but in my garden they don't really like monarda (bee balm), cardinal flower, obedience plant does get chewed, but not mowed down. Wild geranium gets eaten, but I've got so much of it now that it's not a big deal when they eat a couple of plants. They love coneflower, as do the rabbits, so I'm growing that up by the pool which is fenced in.
