I am an unexperienced gardener, and I have 10 little bags of seeds of blue flowers. Each bag's content looks like this:
The list of included species and their percentage in the mix is as follows:
Since I am not familiar with all those plants, I plan to sow them in 10 different places in the garden, having various conditions, in terms of sunlight, wind exposure, soil, walnut tree proximity, microclimate, etc., allowing nature to do its selection.
That way, at the end of vegetation season, I will know what works and what doesn't work. Next year, I could focus on what works.
I would like to call this 'design by experience'.
Does this plan sound right to you?
Some interesting common names of species in the mix:
- Cynoglossum amabile - Chinese forget-me-not
- Nigella hispanica - Spanish fennel flower
- Salvia farinacea - Mealycup sage
