default Seed Mixes...

Post by Sparhawk on 24th February 2010, 9:26 am

One thing I forgot to mention yesterday was that when we were shopping in M******** I came across boxes called a "seed shaker mixes" for £2 or 2 for £3 there are some for varying sorts of gardening but the one I picked up is the "butterfly & bee flowers" & it do say:

approximately 30 varieties of seed
covers approx 50m2
sow Feb to June, flowers June to Oct

The only down side that I can see is the it doesnt tell you what flower seeds it contains, but I'm sure they could be useful in the wildlife bit of my garden or to brighten up a bit of waste ground IYKWIM & help butterflies & bees...
