    Naturalized planting of large area with aspens, wisteria and cork-screw willow. It doesn't get any easier to plant a large area. Tilled the soil, raked, broadcast seed, watered and watched it grow and bloom. When the temperature hit the high nineties, I did need to water every other day.

      We used the wild flower mix in a 2 acre pasture. The deer have avoided the area. This year the annual seeds bloomed, I can not wait to see the perennials blooms next year!

        Could not get this large area cleared before July. Spread deer resistant wildflower seed mid July with no expectations that it would make much of a statement in a short growing time. It is now Oct. and there is great coverage especially on steep slopes beside driveway. Great fragrance and no sign of eating critters. We are in a dense deer population area of Michigan.

              Comments about American Meadows Deer Resistant Wildflower Seed Mix:

              I bought 2 of these wild flower seeds - 1 for myself nd one for my grandchildren. Mine have been growing for a couple of months and have filled in a bed that was once nothing but weeds! I couldn't be happier. My grandchildren had to wait for Spring to plant theirs, they live in the East. It was a great gift to give them and they were very excited to recieve them and eager to spread them and watch them grow.

              Annuals were beautiful and plentiful (bachelor buttons, sweet alyssum, California poppy, marigolds). Either did not receive or did not grow some of listed perennials. There were substitions of annuals, but they were beautiful. I will be ordering again.

              Comments about American Meadows Deer Resistant Wildflower Seed Mix:

              So far so good despite planting in the worst drought year in a long time. As such, requires daily 20 minute sprinkler sessions in a fairly shaded setting. My biggest complaints about the product - descriptions not very specific about light requirements and sure wish American Meadows would provide pictures of different growing stages so we would know what to expect - an awful lot of the early plants look like weeds to me - but have hung on and are getting many beautiful blooms now.

                Part of a 1 acre conversion and they have been wonderful! I at first wondered if I had needed to really have deer resistant plants, but soon as I saw my other wildflowers getting de-flowered by the deer I realized these were my safety net.

                      I was excited about this seed. I followed direction and waited until recently to start checking for growth. Its almost May now and I have not one wildflower. Not sure if it just wasn't hardy enough for our winter.

                                I live next door to a lady that feed the deer. Nevertheless, I have anywhere from 5 to 30 deer in my yard almost always. I wanted to plant wildflowers that the deer would not eat. These flowers were not only beautiful the deer totally ignored them. I believe that I had an average of 80% of my seeds germinate and it is only early spring. I received a great variety and mix. I cannot wait until they are in full bloom in a few weeks. The only disadvantage is dealing with planting wildflower seeds in the wind and cold. I love all my purchases from AM.

                                  This mix gave me so much more than what I expected! I think every single seed germinated!!! The zinnias were the stars the first year providing a constant supply for cuttings, as well as attracting bees and butterflies. The garden had a lovely wild look to it, and I would plant these seeds again, but I don't have to!!! Because they'll all come back with me doing practically nothing! I'm looking forward to seeing which plants are the stars this year. Love the surprise factor and anticipation!!!

                                    This was a good mix and kept the deer out. I enjoyed the flowers and the deer still came around in other parts of the field.

                                      We're re-seeding our wildflower meadow.[...] And, they smelled so wonderful I couldn't wait to plant them.
