Good Bug Blooms

Sow this beneficial mix of annuals in the spring. There's always more to do in the garden than we can do alone, so why not invite some little friends to help out? The green lacewing on this pack will love these flowers and reward your generosity by laying eggs in your garden. The eggs will hatch into "aphid lions," their larval stage, which will voraciously devour insect pests. Get to know and love the good bugs by providing nectar and habitat for them to thrive. This mix includes cosmos, annual gaillardia, several varieties of zinnias, blue cornflower, sweet alyssum, flax, chamomile, and a rotating mix of a few other beneficials.

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS: All annual flowers. Broadcast and rake in lightly after last frost, then keep watered until germination. Thin to about a 12" spacing--wider for bushier plants, tighter for dense mix of blooms.

Eastern Pollinator Mix

A great mix to establish a patch of ground for pollinators. This mix contains both annuals and perennials, and can be sown in a prepared plot either in the fall or in the spring. The contents of mixes are wide and broad. Not every species will establish itself, but many will, giving way to varied habit suited to your location. This annual and perennial mix contains Partridge Pea, Purple Coneflower, Coreopsis, Indian Blanket, Wild Sunflower, Perennial lupine, Butterfly Milkweed, Wild Indigo, Spiderwort, Eastern Columbine, Lemon Mint, White Asters, Trefoil, Black-Eyed Susan, Lavendar Hyssop, New England Asters, Plains Coreopsis, Spotted Bee Balm, and Gray Golden Rod.

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS: In in late fall or early-spring, broadcast into a prepared area (not lawn or hard ground; clear and loosen soil first). Do no just walk away from plot and assume nature will work wonders: one or two weedings will be required. But after that, behold: beautiful flowers!
