Groupon currently is selling pre-seeded roll-out mats with flower seeds for $19.99! 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. Cover with ¼” of soil. Water twice daily. Seeds should germinate in about 2-3 weeks. Cut flowers about 2 weeks after blooming to encourage continuous growth.
Here are some additional details about these mats:
- Mix of wildflower seeds on a roll-out mat
- Flowers when grown may attract hummingbirds or butterflies
- Each mat may include 12–16 varieties of flower seeds
- 100% biodegradable dry wood fiber mat
- Mat dimensions: 4’ x 7’ x 7.5”
- Mix of annual wildflowers
- Bloom in summer to fall
- Heights when fully grown vary from 8”– 24”
- Unused mat may be stored for up to 3 years stored in a cool, dry place
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!
