Wild flower seed mix - does this sound right?

I sewed a couple of boxes of mixed wildflower seed about 10 days ago. Some regular looking seedlings have appeared plus quite a few shoots that look like odometer kind of grass. Does that sound right or could it be grass somehow left behind when we dug the border?

  • Odometer?! Some!

  • Oh no! My little box was only £2 :-/  it promibad various types of flower on the box though!

  • Oh god...promised. Bleeding autocorrect.

    And some grasses are very useful to insects - particularly some butterflies.image

  • Lets hope they do turn into something otherwise I'll have to dig it all out and start again. 

    Dove I have quite a phobia of butterflies so if I end up attracting them I'll be admiring my garden from the window!

    Oh dear - how difficult and sad for a gardener - I know that phobias can cause real problems - have you tried any therapy?

    Perhaps a wildflower mix wasn't the best choice for you Kirsty image

  • No I just try to avoid them at all costs, or shut my eyes and pretend they're not there!
