Great product

Seeds arrived promptly and well packaged. I followed the included directions and now have a wonderful little wildflower patch. There were a few early blooms also.

Wild flower dissemination.

I'm not blaming you for my failures, and I am grateful that you are making these seeds available. I intend to keep trying.

We are at higher elevations still in winter season, so the full extent of the nurturing mix is not yet known, but all are certain to be helpful for native bees in my area.

Germinated well

These were a gift. My brother-in-law planted them in Phoenix and said they had a high germination rate.
