              Comments about American Meadows Native Southwest Wildflower Seed Mix:

              I'm still hopeful that the seed will grow. I see several very small greenery but a very slow process right now. It is very very dry here in NM and I was persistent in watering and go exactly by the directions provided. If not this year, then next year I expect to see growth. I'm being optimistic.

                Planted wildflower seeds in December. It is now, end of May and they are still blooming. I have received so many compliments from strangers and neighbors on how beautiful they are. They also want to know where I order them. American Meadows. Awesome seeds.

                  Comments about American Meadows Native Southwest Wildflower Seed Mix:

                  Planted the seed in November, but I think our winter was just to much. Followed the instructions, but a few weeks after planting we had terrible winds and about three very heavy rain storms and most of the seed was washed away. We have a few varities that made a show here and there, but what few poppies came up are still only a half inch tall. Will try again next year!
