Colorscape Seed Shaker

Includes 13 annual flower varieties: Black-Eyed Susan, California Poppy, Candytuft, Chinese Forget-Me-Not, Classic Zinnia, Deep Carmine Baby's Breath, French Marigold, Lilac Godetia, Love in a Mist, Persian Carpet Zinnia, Pixie Delight Lupine, Red Corn Poppy, and Sweet Alyssum.

Sow your wildflower patch in early to mid-spring. Prepare the soil as you would for any bed. Clean out the weeds. Aerate with a garden fork if compact, then rake flat. Lift open the spout of your Seed Shaker and spread the seeds out evenly over an area no bigger than 100 square feet. Then press seeds into the soil by walking over the planted area (with flat-soled shoes!) or using a board to pat them down. If the soil is dry, water the seeds in. In fall, soils are usually moist enough without.
Continue watering in spring for a few weeks; again, fall sowings usually don't need it. Weed fastidiously until plants reach 12-18" in height. Be patient; the perennial blooms will get better every year!
