Good mix that keeps suprisingI sowed a bit of this mix early spring of last year in a very small bare spot next to my swimming pool that was full sun and very dry. Perhaps because they were the only plants I quickly identified as sprouts, the main plants to survive were the drought-tolerant varieties. I have some beautiful echinacea, gaillardia, and calendula in this spot a year later. The gaillardia came in the first year but the echinacea and calendula only grew a year later. This spot has gone from being an embarrassment to a beautiful focal point in my yard. In addition to honeybees, the leafcutter bees can't get enough of these plants. My only regret is I don't have more space to plant this mix.

Filler is there for a reasonI've seen complaints that this is full of filler. Yes, it is, and it's there for a reason: it makes it much easier to sow the seed evenly. The price doesn't include extra for the filler -- compare this with similar mixes that don't have filler, and the price is about the same. Don't think of it as filler, think of it as "free sowing aid medium" if you like. I have had great germination success when sown in warm weather.
