By popular demand, here is a mix of annuals and perennials under 2' tall, for use below trees, cane berries, vines or along border areas with height limitations. This mix performs best with regular drip, sprinkler or furrow irrigation during dry periods and blooms 6-10 months/year.
Drill or broadcast seed at 10-15 lb/acre (.5 lb/1,000 sq ft) in any but the coldest months of the year. Blooms begin 45-90 days after planting and will continue for years.
Contains: Carrot, Chervil, Coriander, Clovers (Crimson, White, and Rose), Subclovers, Nasturtium, Parsley, Alyssum, and Yarrow.
NOTE to Certified Organic Growers: The seed in this Good Bug Blend is conventional seed, but the legumes in the mix are coated with Nitro-Coat Organic, which is an OMRI listed coating. This coating uses all organic ingredients: the proper rhizobacteria, a Calcium Carbonate coating that is naturally water absorbing to speed seed germination, and an OMRI listed organic adhesive.
This stuff germinates quickly, is actually quite pleasing to the eye (large bright green leaves) and does exactly what it says it goes - attracts good bugs. :) I've never seen more ladybugs in one area of the yard before.Review by Kelly (on 8/20/13)
