Anybody growing wildflower gardens?
Last winter I put seeds in one end of my large flowerbed in Texas Natives and grasses along with a few roses (of course!) to see what would happen, and didn't mulch this area so they would reseed.
Wow, it started off slow, a few here and there, and by summer's end and even today I have wall to wall flowers still blooming. We have a rabbit living out there as well as doves and other birds who seem to like it as cover; I love this area!
