Bernice Z. Mountain Top, PA.
Bernice Z. sent us in these wonderful photos of her wildflower garden along with the following comment: “I’m sending along photos because I love these seeds! Planted the pollinator seeds to attract butterflies and hummingbirds and boy, did it work! Planted them this last June and was amazed at how much they grew in such a short time, I can hardly wait until next year! By the way, my goldfinches love this mix also, they are all over the seed heads. I am really loving these seeds….wish more people would add them to their gardens….they truly are a butterfly and hummingbird magnet, also this is the first time in a long time that I attracted honeybees. Thanks again for your awesome seeds!” (Bernice used our Ultimate Pollinator Combo which is the Hummingbird/Butterfly Mix and the Deluxe Mix)
Hi. I am going to be ordering for my 3rd year in a row. I tell everyone about you. I have tried other wildflower seed mixes and yours are by far the best. Thanks so much for your attention to quality. My farm always looks beautiful! And I look like a pro (wink, I know it is your mixes and a little love). I sharings these photos with you. They are gorgeous!
Bill M. has been doing the town project with wildflowers. Here are photos of a first-year bloom from the Northeast Mix at the entrance of the town and other town areas with the Annual Low Grow mix. Residents have marveled at the beautiful scenery as well as all the attention the gardens bring!
Larry did our ground cover mix and other short species around his courtyard and the results are spectacular! Larry said: These photos were taken on our grounds recently. This year, I decided to experiment and plant wildflowers in places other than my cutting areas. In a number of places the effects were stunning; the shots that I sent along were taken in what we call our “court yard”, around a central blue spruce; other photos were shot through our surrounding “picket fence”. We call our property the “Gray Farm”, 2 acres situated in the heart of Amish Country. Our farm house is noted as being the homestead of Martin Mylin ( circa 1720), the inventor of the Pennsylvania long rifle ( also known as the Kentucky rifle of Daniel Boone fame)
I love my little backyard "meadow," and I was just so happy and proud to grow my own flowers for our wedding. Thanks for the wonderful quality of your seeds, and for the many inspirational photos on your site. If only I had a bigger yard . . . :-)
Here are some pictures from our first attempt at a ľ acre field of wildflowers. The results far exceeded our expectations, and unfortunately the pictures do not do justice to the real thing. We followed the instructions provided with our packets of seed, and what we grew was amazing. Butterflies & Hummingbirds galore all spring and summer, and Golden Finches when the flowers turned to seed in the fall. We cant wait to add another ˝ acre plot this year.
This customer has been working on his acreage little by little throughout the years with our assistance in rectifying some issues with soil and grass. The results are spectacular. These photos were sent to us and he can't stop folks from stopping to see the beautiful display!
We receive photos of our customers summer bouquets picked from their wildflower gardens and fields! Here are a few to enjoy! You can use most wildflower mix flowers as a source for beautiful bouquets but try our Cutflower Fragrant mix!
You don't need a big space to have a spectacular garden full of color! Take a look at these beautiful small gardens!
These photos show a first-round bloom of an individually seeded perennial such as Lupine followed by what came next. Sweet William, Gloriosa Daisies! You don't always have to do a mix, you can choose just a few early, mid, late season blooming species!
This customer did several mixes in both sun and partial shade areas. Mixes such as Partial Shade Mix, Quick Bloom, Xeriscape and some individual species. This is the first year color and it is gorgeous!
This garden is from the Northeast premixed seed bag that I orded from you this early summer. I went to this ladies house and planted a wildflower garden of her own. She was the biggest sponsor of the wildflower project and if anyone deserved there own wildflower garden she was the one. She looks pretty happy with her garden. Thanks so much for every thing you have done for me and this project.
"Im a veteran and when these wildflowers started coming up it really brightened my day. I have done half the pond. Working my way around whole pond. Thanks again I recommend you to all my friends and people who might be interested in wildflowers.
It wasn't hard work. We tossed about 5 pounds over shale and fill dirt and voila. We've got other areas we plan to do. Grows as advertised. The second-year growth is awesome and spectacular. Thanks again.
This customer sent in these wonderful photos of their wildflower area in front of their home with the following note: "In 2007, with the help of some wonderful landscapers, we planted our 17,000 sq. ft. meadow with seeds from the Vermont Wildflower Farm. This year we've thoroughly enjoyed our meadow of wildflowers. We're sending these photos because we think you and other wildflower enthusiasts will enjoy them." These photos depict early spring perennial bloom of Dame's Rocket, Siberian Wallflower and mid season bloom of Gloriosa Daisy and others. The bloom will change in spring, summer and fall. Beautiful job on this planting done by Durgin & Durgin Landscaping. LLC! This customer used the All Perennial Mix!
Thought you might enjoy a picture or two of the flowers that came up this year. I wish we had more room to grow them, but when they're in their prime, they're the prettiest thing in the neighborhood. The rock wall you see starts at the street and goes all the way up our driveway. Most of our neighbors really enjoy them!!!! Thanks! Sarah
