This year we are DEtermined to have a beautiful garden we can enjoy while keeping in mind the basic principles of permaculture with a concentration on attracting pollinators with a concentration on butterflies and solitary bees.
I’VE RECENTLY RECEIVED SOME SEEDS I ORDERED!
Yes, that’s right, I am very excited. Last year I ordered two types of wildflower seeds from Eden Brothers. Those were the Bees Knees Pollinator Wildflower Mix and the Partial Shade Wildflower Mix (which I planted in full sun) and I was very happy with the amount of seeds (no fillers) and the fact that all I did was clear weeds, turn the dirt and sprinkle for a glorious display of flowers.
Unfortunately, the deer ate a lot of what was included with the Bees Knees Pollinator Wildflower Mix so I did not purchase that one again. Instead, I purchased two other varieties. One is Snapdragons (mixed colors) listed on my Truly Deer Resistant Plants Page.
The other one I am fairly certain is deer resisitant and that is Zinnia (also a mix of colors). Last year, I bought a small packet of Zinnia seeds which I grew in a pot but they were double blossoms which are not preferred by butterflies, in particular, so I purchased the single flower seeds this time.
I also purchased some Cardinal Climber from Menards and I will start that inside on March 1st.
Now, I must peruse the Eden Brothers site to plan my next purchase of seeds. You can never have too many seeds…. right?
