Bee, Butterfly & Hummingbird Mix

Halifax, MA(Zone 6a)

Wunne Quttuhquŏhqu Nishnoh(Good Afternoon Everyone),

All pakets have been given away. Thank you all so much. Until next January, Aquene!.


We came from here: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1167267/

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:

Hi maccionoadha

You sent me some #1 mix last April, and I sowed in a somewhat shady spot and we have a c ool, wet climate.

Something came up this year, acting like a biennjial, and people tell me it looks like Dianthus (or phlox). One guy was sure it was Dianthus barbatus.

Maybe I scattered some other flower mix at the same time, but not in my recollection or by my records (both fallible).

Could there be any Dianthus (or phlox) in your #1 mix? Or I may not be recognizing some synonym.



Everett, WA(Zone 8a)

Whoops! They look like this:

Wunne Mohtompan (Good Morning),

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?

Don't be sorry, it survived my clumsiness and poor soil and a forced transplanting and slugs, then bloomed!
