Pest-Fighting Annual Flower Mix
This seed mix is a single packet with seeds for many different flowers that attract beneficial insects. It can be used in the vegetable garden, as there are no perennials with permanent roots that would make sowing the next crop difficult. They vary in height from 1 to 5 feet, and in bloom time from early spring until frost. We suggest planting a narrow border at one edge of the garden. It is also possible to plant a few seeds at the ends or corners of vegetable beds, in large containers, in awkward areas of the yard, etc. For best results, combine the contents of the packet with 1 cup of dry soil, mix very well, and sprinkle evenly over a weeded and raked bed, rake in very lightly, and water well. Covers 60 square feet.
