I have Bee, Butterfly & Hummingbird mixes available for SASE. A while back Burt's Bees offered small packs of Bee seed mix for postage. I then offered my own Bee, Butterfly & Hummingbird mix to Dave's Garden members who were unable to receive any Burt's Bee packets. Though they only went to the ones, who did not get a chance to request them from Burt's Bees, I thought everyone should have had the chance to help the dwindling bee population. So, I made a mix similar to that of Burt's, but added a some extras. Burt's pack stated it weighs 300mg. I checked it with a measuring spoon and it came to less than 1/4 teaspoon. I have made this year's packs approx. 2 tablespoons.
They will go to the first responders. Please post your request here, so that I will be able to tell who requested first. I will list below with updates. I will Dmail the growing information, when I mail back your SASE.
Nut-aiuskuiantam (I am sorry) to say, the post office has raised the mailing rate yet again; if mailed in the U.S.A, the SASE needs to have $1.95 in postage on it. My post office will return to me any envelope with less than $1.95 in postage. For international requests, I will check with the U.S.A. Post Office website for the cost of shipping to your country and advise you of the postage amount.
Here's a comparison of what Burt's Bees versus my packs contain:
I included Phlox drummondii in the mix.I got the Phlox seed from Wildseed Farms. I do not remember putting in any Dianthus. I am not sure what happened. It does look like Dianthus barbatus. Hmm... Sorry about that.
Has anyone else had this problem, with the seeds I gave out?
