Fluttering butterfly garden flower seed mix, A great way to attract pollinators to a garden.
A gift of perennial flowers for yourself, a friend, or family. – A Gift of Flowers – A Natural Gift
The best way to invite wildlife and butterflies to your garden is to fill it with lots and lots of colorful annual and perennial flowers.
Monarch butterflies are particularly attracted to milkweed and these plants play an important role in their lifecycle.
Keeping their preferences in mind I have tried and tested the following seed mix and have been thrilled with the results for several seasons in my own urban oasis.
Sowing this seed mix 1 at home and in your garden, school, or local park can help start a garden from a piece of waste ground, better results will be achieved if the area is cleared of all perennial weeds and the soil lightly tilled before sowing seed mix best-sown Fall thru Spring.
I read that many flower seeds can be hand-sown on fresh snowfall, that way you can see your spread and as the snow melts the seed becomes trapped in ready prepared bare earth. Do not recommend trying this on a slope as your flowers will all gravitate downwards, or if seeds are in short supply.
Many native or naturalized plants are tough and hardy that will survive all but the poorest conditions, so invite them home to an unused corner of your garden.
Bright colors, red, purple, and orange are known to encourage hummingbirds to visit.
Mix selected after years of observing pollinators feeding in my own urban backyard.
I have selected these nectars filled Summertime blooms proven to attract Monarchs and many species butterflies.

I recommend sowing these seeds, direct on a prepared seedbed or garden container, water well, and protect from winter weather with a fabric fleece if some seeds germinate early.
1) Sow direct in a prepared seedbed
2) Cold frame sheltered location outdoors
3) Under lights
4) Bright windowsill
I like to grow 1/2 of my seed in pots this way you can break dormancy, simply by moving the pots around and most seeds germinate in batches, care must be taken when picking out to avoid disturbing emerging seedlings.
Pot young plants on until large enough to plant out, this native plant mix prefers poor soil in full sun.
