I just saw the garden my neighbor created this Spring with this mix, and it's GORGEOUS! I had to find this website so that I can order some for next Spring.

Excellent results

I bought this made-for-shade pack from Sprouts. Very happy with the results. Fast germination rates and a nice mix of colors, textures.

Not as many flowers as expected

4 out of 5 stars Jan 27, 2021
I purchased a large pack in a store locally last spring and sowed the seeds in what looked like an ideal shady location with sun for just a while in the afternoon. I was very excited when I started to see seeds germinating, and I was able to identify the poppy and a couple others but I definitely did not get all the types I expected from the information on the packet. I really enjoyed what came up but I was hoping for a thicker patch of flowers with more variety.

Lots of balsam

This mix grew well. My shadiest parts of the yard grew almost exclusively balsam, but more plants grew in part shade. Nothing seemed to come back the following year.

Delicate & Colorful

Extremely pleased with this gorgeous mix. Growing so well in my dappled/shade bed. Many forget-me-nots, candy tuft, stock, and definitely have some poppies and snaps coming. Amazed some of these could grow in Central Texas. We had heavy rain for a few weeks and that made these burst to life, so I suggest thorough watering for seedlings.

Owner Response: Hi Marie, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you had trouble with this flower mix. You've left several disappointed reviews on flower mixes today. We would love to help you get growing. Our seeds are tested by a third-party laboratory to ensure germination rates meet federal and our own standards. It often just takes a little trick to get that same, great germination at home also. We are always here to help!

Made in the shade

For shaded or semi-shaded areas, one can't beat Made in the Shade seeds. I've purchased a half dozen packets over the last 5 years and experienced high levels of germination and strong, healthy plants each time.
