Bee Garden out of control

Well, I chose instant gratification this time around and got it.

Going forward, I would not recommend using any “pre-fab” seed mix containing bachelor’s button (aka cornflower) OR corn poppy. Although they are spectacular, these nonnative species take over and a lack of diversity is the result. I had a lot of weeding to do this year in the shade meadow at Petersen Farm!

A local flower farmer (@wasatchblooms) did come harvest some bachelor’s button stems, so about 0.01% went to a good cause..
