Groupon currently is selling a 3-pack of pre-seeded roll-out mats with flower seeds for $14.99! This could be a fun and easy way to get a nice bed of evenly-spaced flowers for your yard or garden for spring.
Here’s how it works: roll out the mat after the danger of frost has passed (soil temp 65° F). Cover with 1/2″ of clean dirt or potting soil. Water twice daily. Seeds should germinate in about 10 – 14 days. Blooms should appear 4 – 6 weeks after germination.
Here are some additional details about these mats:
- Flowers include: scarlet flax, candytuft, cosmos, catchfly, and other
- Sunlight exposure: partial sun
- Blooming periods: spring – summer
- Estimated height when fully grown: 8″ – 24″
- Multi-color seed mats include three 7′ (L) x 7.5″ (W) pre-seeded garden rolls containing over 12,000 seeds
- Can be cut to any size
- 100% biodegradable
Personally, I think this is a great idea! I have a few spaces in my yard I think this would work well. Most orders should arrive within 7 days of order being placed. Head to Groupon to learn more or place an order!
