Botanical Interests "Bring Home the Butterflies" Mixed Seeds
It's easy to convert your garden into a private retreat for native butterflies with this colorful mix of 26 different annuals and perennials to provide for them at each stage of their lifecycle. Nectar-filled flowers attract mature butterflies while host plants provide food for their caterpillar stage. This mix covers an area of approximately 45 square feet.
When to plant outside: RECOMMENDED. Sow 1-2 weeks before the average last spring frost. A second option: sow half the seed 4 weeks before the average last frost (hoping the last frost is earlier than usual) and sow the second half a week or two after the average last frost (just to be safe).
When to start inside: Not recommended.
Special Sowing & Germination Instructions: A great way to tell if the seedlings coming up in your planting area are from the flower mix or weeds is to sow a pinch of the seeds in a container at the same time for comparison.
