Reviews

good performance in very sandy soil

I grew your phacelia for the first time this year in Central Wisconsin, as an annual. The bees loved it so they flew away from buckwheat! They were over-ridden by weeds because I didn't disc the soil properly, but my soil depth is only 3", with 35 ft. of sand underneath. I have to water, of course. I did that at night so as not to disturb my girls' foraging. My patch was too small and I didn't plant enough seeds to choke out the weeds. I'm planning to improve that next year!
