The Living Seed Company - Feed our pollinator friends, with Jane’s Seeds of Hope!
Celebrating 40 years of the Jane Goodall Institute, this certified organic seed mix contains flowers that are commonly grown in gardens in the United States. They were selected to be easy to grow across many regions and provide food over long periods of time for honey bees, wild bees, butterflies, other pollinator insects, and birds! It is recommend that these seeds be planted in garden plots, yards and/or pots. While none of these flowers are invasive they can reseed in ideal climates. This is not a wildflower mix to use in a wild setting. These are flowers to feed pollinators close to your home, community garden, school, etc.
Mix includes sunflowers, borage, calendula, poppies, and echnicacea
Excellent for cut flowers
Instructions -Plant these seeds either directly in the ground or a large pot after danger of frost is over. Or start them indoors in smaller pots and transplant when chance of frost is over. You can pick out individual seeds to plant or plant the entire packet in an approximately 100 square foot area (try to give each seed about 6-8 inches of space).
Keep soil moist, but don’t over water. Leave seed heads on plants after they have dried to feed the birds. Save seed by collecting flower heads when they have fully dried up . Break seed heads up to get the seeds. Store fully dried seeds in a cool dry place and plant again next year!
