Should have a bunch of wildflowers!

I bought some this year, selectively planting in various areas. Squirrels promptly began digging where planted so pit some netting over. Beginning to poke through today...less the strip I seeded yesterday.

Are you mechanized, or walking your broadcast spreader? 

I have one of those pull behind jobs. 
Mixing the seed with bags of sand to control how densely the seed is spread.

I burned the bashed up cardboard boxes that held the seed. My neighbor, a half a mile away, asked if I was burning something as his yard is filled with smoke. 
Spread really finely, a cardboard box covers an amazingly large area.

I throwing down some grass seed tomorrow.  No flowers allowed.

 

One dark stormy night, excess wildflower seed needs to be disposed of. They will love your lawn fertilizer and should have a bountiful crop of flowers. :D

I hope you post some pictures when things are in bloom.  I bet it will be beautiful!

I will, and I hope so. The dirt down here is pretty ugly.

the trick is too find a carrier with particles approximately the same size and weight as your seeds.  Think about a glass jar with two different size or weight materials in it.  Shake it up and they will separate out. Make sure the sand is very dry if you can.
