Easy and Prolific

5 out of 5 stars Apr 9, 2020
I threw blue flax seeds randomly throughout my pollinator garden bed, and then forgot about them. It has grown so well the past three years, and reseeds so easily, that I have dug up plants for neighbors and ripped plants out and thrown them in the compost. It needs very little water, and looks really pretty dancing in the wind. I also pull the seed heads off and toss them over my fence into the open space behind my house, along with poppy seeds and bachelor button seeds. There is a lovely, colorful combination of wildflowers coming up all over now in a space that use to just be thistle, yellowdock and prairie dog holes.

I both winter sowed on my patio, and direct sowed flax seed later in a raised bed. The latter was more successful. It was direct sown amidst crimson clover and dill to attract pollinators. It became a sturdy plant by early fall.
