    Sunflower mix

    This is my second or third year buying your sunflower mix. I am thankful it is available and at a reasonable price for the variety vs. buying so many packets of seeds. We enjoy planting them on the edge of our main vegetable garden. The bees enjoy the pollen. Our eyes feast on the variety of colors/ hues, sizes and shapes. The beauty lasts thru the winter when birds hang on them for a "bird feeder". Last year a friend did her wedding with my flowers and saved a bundle along with stunning variety and beauty ! This year I ordered extra packets for gifts to fellow gardeners who admired my sunflower display. I only hope you continue to carry these. I only wish you carried a "short" sunflower mix for some of my other gardens and edges!!
