      Hello Stephanie,

      If you've never planted wildflowers I'd recommend our All Annual Mix: . This is an easy to grow mix of quick blooming wildflowers that would thrive in most areas that get 4 or more hours of sun. All our products come with full instructions as well which will walk you through the steps for a successful planting!

      I guarantee if you follow our instructions you won't be disappointed!

    I purchased a big bag of a midwest mix I believe earlier this year. I was making seed bombs. I have a lot left over. How should I go about putting them in an existing bed? This bed needs to be re-done. What is the best way to cover a large area?

    • Jenny

      Hi Michelle, seed bombs are so much fun! Great idea. With your leftover mix, you'll want to scatter the seeds evenly over prepared soil. You can read more about how and when to do this by visiting this link:
      Remember that your Midwest Wildflower Mix is comprised of half annual varieties and half perennial varieties, giving you some quick color this year, with some longer-lasting blooms arriving next season. Let us know if you have any further questions! Happy Gardening - Jenny
