Mostly Indian blanket?

4 out of 5 stars Sep 18, 2021
The only things that grew were a bunch of Indian blanket and one Mexican hat. Maybe the Indian blanket grew faster and overpowered everything else. Still beautiful, though.

Owner Response: Hi Elise, Thank you for sharing your experience. I'm wondering if the other perennials have not yet flowered. It is normal for many perennials to take two growing seasons to flower. We are happy to help if you want to reach out to our horticulturist or customer service.

Nothing sprouted. April planting in well established flower beds. Other things planted in same beds thrived, but Botanical Interests seeds poorly performed overall.

I guess I planted too late in May/should have followed your guidelines of planting 2-4 weeks before last frost/ for Onondaga city that would be late april, early may. I must have planted close to the end of may...too late? no germination at all- not one sprig of Wildflower came up

Owner Response: Hi Frank, We are sorry you had issued germinating this flower mix. Following the packet timeline is ideal giving some of the native perennials in this mix the cold period they need to break dormancy. As the season progresses temperatures make keeping seeds consistently moist a challenge, requiring frequent waterings, often several times a day. A customer service agent will contact you by email to help.
