Love it
Reviewed By: Richard (Aurora, IL)
We purchased this for use in our organic garden. There were two ways of seeding, direct sow and broadcast. We had no success with the broadast but with the direct sow, we received really beautiful results. We have seen misc. butteflies, soldier beetles, various bees, hoverflys and others. I would recommend.

Gurney's bug blend
Reviewed By: Sharon (Bend, OR)
I planted this last summer in my garden and was quite happy with the results. I was especially happy with the orange poppies, babies breath and cilantro. I have purchased again for this summer.

Nice assortment
Reviewed By: Greg (Belair, MD)
I bought this mix because I want to attract beneficial insects to my veggie garden. I didn't mix with seed, but sprinkled the seed onto prepared ground and raked in. I ended up with a thick bed of wildflowers. The other review mentions being mostly cilantro. I think he got a bad batch because while I had some cilantro, it was nowhere near the majority. I got the large package so have a lot left, but I would buy this again. I just would follow the instructions and broadcast it mixed with sand, my bed was just too dense.

Beneficial bug bugs me
Reviewed By: Heather (Frankfort, KY)
I ordered the large container of this, twelve ounces or some such. It said to broadcast, mix with sand, which I did. There was nothing like the bed of thick flowers pictured. The flowers that did come up were sparse. The majority of the plant seed in there were cilantro, which is fine for eating but not what I expected. Definite waste.
