A big surprise !
I had ordered my wildflower seed packet from Burt's Bees a few months ago, and had since heard that they had run out!
Well, I had a great surprise in the mail today...they arrived! I went to the website again tonight and they have posted that they have, indeed run out of seeds! I must have received one of their last packets! I will have to wait until mid-October to plant them here.
I am so excited to possibly influence the bee population in some small way! I will also be planting my Zinnias, and Cleomes.
The Burt's Bees packet has all of the following flowers inside:
Calendula, Shasta Daisy, Lance-Leaved Coreopsis, Plains Coreopsis, Purple Coneflower and Sweet William Catchfly...if anyone wants to reproduce what they sent out, and plant your own as well.
They sent out over 50,000 seed packets which equals MILLIONS of flowers being planted across the country. YEAHHHHH!!!
