    Offered again for 2016. Order quickly, they won't last long.

    I did this last year, planted the seeds, and a nice assortment of wildflowers bloomed! It definitely added to the bee population.

      The only things that lives for me is a basil plant and a lucky bamboo plant which are one my patio. I will give this a try.

      They work best if you can scatter them in an area that gets rain and full sun. Many will naturalize and come up again, in Texas they are blooming along the highways with no extra care at all. We have a bed just for wildflowers, we just add more seeds to the same area to keep them going.

      Our basil plants (which are not perennial) that we plant in pots near the driveway do live from year to year in our moderate climate. I pinch out the blooms on the plants that I use for cooking, but those I allow to bloom do attract the bees, as well. So it's win-win: on one side of the house we have bees and wildflowers, and on the other side we have bees with herbs, vegetables, and citrus growing in pots. My lemon trees need those bees!

    There's a delay in shipping the seeds due to overhelming response.

    Site says
    The first seed packets will ship in mid-April and should arrive by the end of the month. After April, most seed packets should be delivered 2-3 weeks after the order is placed.
