Last month, I wrote a review cautioning that these seeds need a lot of irrigating to start out and that by late June in central Oregon, I had seen merely a couple of varieties in bloom. Well, fast forward three weeks with warmer night-time weather and my wildflower beds have really taken off. Beautiful wispy blooms are everywhere with a lot of color and height variety. Started with a prolific alyssum-type flower, then rep poppies, now so many I can't tell what's what! So I'd like to amend my previous review by still recommending early watering for many weeks, yes, and adding good dose of patience.

Broadcast in April mixed with compost in our around-the-house-and-yard flower beds after preparing the soil with high quality organic fertilzer and plenty of humus. This was necessary because of our sandy soil and arid climate in west-central Oregon. Good germination, but seedlings routinely died after about a week if they were not irrigated for 20 minutes morning and evening. I had to re-seed two additional times before I had hardy seedlings. Finally getting some blooms now in late June, but mostly only two or three varieties and they still need once daily irrigation. I haven't given up on them - hoping for more variety as summer advances. These are not a throw-and-go meadow mix by any means. I suspect fall sowing would be a better practice for these seeds and I might give them another try. I'd like to echo the other reviewers - it would be better if we knew generally which flowers to expect to help with weeding. Thanks.

I didn't expect so many of the seeds to be viable, so I over seeded. I ended up with a garden that was choking itself! Great product! Amazing results!

Good prolific seeds

Scatter them in dry areas that need cover. They do need adequate water to get startedand to maintain.

Very nice mix
By Barb wire
from southwestern Montana
The response and the arrival of seeds was very good. I was pleased with the speed and the quality and quantity, but I gave them away and so have not seen the results.

About Me Getting Started
This is the other wildflower mix I used when replanting a small area at our business. The wildflowers created a stunning look that required little maintenance.

It Works for Me
from Southern New Mexico
So I just tossed these seeds out and forgot about them. Some came up and added attractive color to a very hot and dry rocky area between my house and the road. Since, to a certain extent, I neglected them by not adding water until they were a few inches tall as directed, I bought another sack and spread them also......these did better but I still used little effort.......I have now done it a third time and the flowers get better each time and as they improve the looks of the area I improve my efforts! It takes a little work and multiple "throws" to help mother nature with her most challenging habitats!

Dry area wildflower seed mix
from Denver, Co.
I like the fact that these wildflower seeds were adapted to our dry Colorado soil. They are hardy and are able to withstand the draught conditions when they arise, (not right now as Co. is experiencing lots of rain) the rain only makes them more prolific.

You do need to do a rain dance!

You really need to hit these seeds with water until they are a few inches tall to get the best results.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
