Good Bug Blooms Seeds
Art Pack. 500 seeds. Species various
Sow this beneficial mix of annuals in the spring. There's always more to do in the garden than we can do alone, so why not invite some little friends to help out? The green lacewing on this pack will love these flowers and reward your generosity by laying eggs in your garden. The eggs will hatch into "aphid lions," their larval stage, which will voraciously devour insect pests. Get to know and love the good bugs by providing nectar and habitat for them to thrive. This mix includes cosmos, annual gaillardia, several varieties of zinnias, blue cornflower, sweet alyssum, flax, chamomile, and a rotating mix of a few other beneficials.
