Grandmother's Cut Flower Garden Flower Mix Seeds

This mix will evoke images of the simpler, less hurried time in which our grandmothers lived. An old-fashioned cutting garden was often no more than a corner of the vegetable garden where a few flower seeds were tossed. Their lovely, cheerful blossoms were a bonus after the hard work of sowing, watering, weeding, and harvesting.

I broadcasted these in my garden in early spring. I now have a lush and colorful patch of beautiful flowers. I especially love to trim bunches of the Chinese forget me nots for bouquets. I see poppies coming up and a few other types of plants that will bloom soon. It's exciting to always see something new blooming. I love this mix!

One of My Favorites of the Mixed Flower Seed Packets

I have purchased most of the mixed packets that Botanical Interests sells. My two favorites are this one and the Hummingbird Mix. This one has a lot of old time favorites, is very hardy, colorful and easy to grow. It attracts lots of pollinators too.

Good Vigor, Can't Wait For Blooms!

Planted a half barrel container in mid Feb to test this variety out. Planter is bursting with young plants and even over seeding a bit and without thinning, I can see 9 or 10 varieties all with similar vigor and another 4 or 5 that are close enough in size that they should survive and flower even getting shaded out a bit. That's pretty impressive for a wildflower mix, where you can often have just a few that take over the bed. Looking forward to May and June!

I never have had much luck with seeds before, no matter how hard I try I can't seem to get them to grow. I was thinking that the same would be true for this pack too but I was so wrong. I planted these seeds and within days they were already starting to grow. I am so excited for all the beautiful flowers that will be here soon. The planter is overflowing! I can't wait to try some other botanical interests mixes!

I planted this entire packet( larger size) in a new bed I dug and it's amazing! The flowers bloom continuously and the bees love it. I will definitely get more for the future.

I planted these seeds in a new garden I created this year. There were several perrenials in between which I sowed the seeds in early May. As the seeds began to grow and bloom, I was amazed at how beautiful the collection was. It changed weekly, with new flowers replacing the spent ones. I had many compliments on the garden from neighbors, and decided that this was the only way I would ever grow a flower garden again. No more buying flats and planting on my hands and knees!!
