Full Description

Mix contains: Annual Baby's Breath, Calendula, Lacy Phacelia, Perennial Lupine, Cornflower, Siberian Wallflower, Scarlet Flax, Chinese Forget-me-not, Crimson Clover, Cosmos, California Poppy, Plains Coreopsis, Annual Gaillardia, Blue Flax, Black Eyed Susan, Sweet alyssum, Viola, Larkspur, Zinnia, Sunflower, and Corn Poppy. This mix covers 1200sq ft.

  • Direct sow seeds in average soil in full sun after danger of heavy frost.
  • Sow in ordinary or poor garden soil. In Deep South, Gulf and Pacific Coast areas, sow from fall to early spring.
  • Sow seeds thinly and cover with ¼ inch of soil.
  • Firm soil lightly and keep evenly moist.
  • Seedlings will emerge in 10-15 days.
  • Thin seedlings to 16 inches apart when seedlings are 1-2 inches tall.
  • Keep soil evenly moist but not wet.
  • Deadhead the plants regularly to keep them blooming continuously.
  • If your calendula plants die out due to hot summer weather, cut them back hard and water. They will start growing again when cooler weather returns.
  • Plants can self-sow, so allow some to set seeds.
  • Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.
  • Remove plants after they are killed by heavy frost in fall to avoid disease issues the following year.
  • Calendula performs best in areas with relatively cool summers, but can grow anywhere.
  • Plant calendula in an herb garden or in containers to add a splash of color, or plant them with both annuals and perennials in flower beds and borders.
  • Taller varieties make beautiful cut flowers and nice additions to dried arrangements. For fresh arrangements, cut the flowers when they are about half open. To dry, hang them in small bunches upside down in a warm, dry place.

Wildflowers, Pollinator Mix is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flowers All Summer Long I also received free seeds with my 2016 spring Burpee order and they were incredibly prolific and beautiful until the frost got them in late-November. Used last years seeds for this year so we'll see how they do. Please keep these around!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally fun I got 2 packs of these for free after ordering some raspberries and hellabors from Burpee. I indifferently scattered them in my parking-strip and the hill behind my house. There were numerous beautiful flowers that came up, bees friend, bachelor buttons, calendulas etc. Totally easy to grow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope Very disappointed. Did not have any blooms/plants all summer. Have about five flowers now. We prepped the space and watered. Followed instructions.
