Thank you for these beautiful flowers. Been having a wonderful time enjoying them nearly all summer long.

Gorgeous wildflower mix

This is my favorite seed mix from Botanical Interests. The plants grow very easily and produce a lovely show of bright colors from late winter to early summer in Southern California. Almost all the species listed on the packet grew and bloomed beautifully. Only the yellow lupine and tufted California poppy did not grow.

Only one variety of these came up, and only a few flowers, it was quite a bummer.

Owner Response: Hi Virginia, We are sorry you didn't see a full array of varieties in this mix. Because the mix is diverse seeds will take different amounts of time to germinate and emerge and will require consistent moisture until all species emerge. A customer service agent will be contacting you to help.

Beautiful Colors!

I sowed the seeds in fall and they sprouted after a few rains! The flowers began popping as soon as the weather shifted towards spring. More varieties are popping up as time continues! Beautiful. Highly recommend.

My first two seedings of this worked awesome, I definitely overcrowded them but a good handful of them have come back. This most recent seeding has been drastically worse, not sure if there are fillers in the ones I bought but none of the ones I planted have come up but I suddenly have a plethora of chickweed that showed up in all the areas that I put these

Owner Response: Hi Gabs, Thank you for sharing your feedback. To answer your questions our seeds do not have fillers or weed seeds. Quality is very important to us and our seeds are tested frequently by a third-part laboratory to ensure germination rates meet federal and our own standards. In your area (CA) poppies are best sown in fall for cool-season germination as soon as conditions are right. As a reminder, these should be surface sown as light aids germination. It is not uncommon for a recently cultivated and watered area to sprout weeds, like common chickweed, from the existing seed bank. It would be best to gently clear the chickweed to give the poppies a fighting chance; cutting the weeds down to avoid disrupting the soil and desired seeds/seedlings is ideal. We are always happy to help troubleshoot issues--just send us an email or give us a call. Happy gardening!

Over a decade of planting these

Everywhere we broadcast these little lovelies, they have come up strong and sure. Marvelous revelation as we have not seen some of these varieties in alternate colors... Yellow and blue lupines, cream colored and orange poppies, white and orange Clarkia

I planted these last year living in interior southern California valley. The bloom was spectacular. I got almost every flower I was supposed to. Second year a lot of volunteers. Tidy tips would be a great addition to this mix.
