May 13, 2018 is a huge day, and you better have it marked on your calendar. It’s Mother’s Day!
Maybe you’ve developed a gifting habit that seems passable. A box of her favorite chocolate…a bottle of perfume…a bouquet of flowers. That’s all good stuff, but if you’ve been bringing the same gift for years and years…it starts to look more like a routine than actual gratitude!
Hancock Seed has a suggestion for breaking out of the ordinary and elevating your Mother’s Day gift to extraordinary: Hancock Wildflower Seed Blends! It’s like a bouquet of flowers that will last her the whole year. If your mom is a gardener, Hancock’s wildflower options are about as good as it gets. Here are five blends that will make you her favorite child this year!
Oh, but get her the chocolate too. She deserves it. You were a handful growing up.
If you are one of Southern neighbors, you cannot go wrong with Hancock’s Southeast Wildflower Seed Mix. The resident Seed Lady was busy during the cold season, improving this blend so that it offers even more color and attracts the same variety of birds and wildlife as before. It features Lupines, Coneflowers, Daisies, Sunflowers and many other wildflower varieties, covering every color of the rainbow.
Trust the mother of four Hancock children when she tells you that this is a winning choice for a Mother’s Day gift.
Some people have a green thumb. Some people struggle to get anything to bloom. Hancock’s Tough 12 Wildflower Mixture is a blessing for both.
This blend is designed for maximum durability, staying strong during bouts of bad weather, while also being drought resistant. This blend of Sunflowers, Susans, Coreopsises and other flowers provides all the color, with much less demand for expertise. And we won’t tell Mom about the expertise thing.
Colorscape Garden Flower Seed Mix
Want to know how pretty the blooms in our Colorscape Garden Flower Seed Mix are? Just listen to their nicknames! California Poppy also goes by the name “Splendid Mix,” Lupine is also known as “Pixie Delight,” and Zinnia goes by the exotic alias “Persian Carpet.” Nigella is often referred to as “Miss Jekyll,” but this isn’t a ‘Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ Reference! It’s named after famed horticulturist Gertrude Jekyll…you might remember her Google Doodle!
We suggested giving your mother a year-round bouquet, and none of our blends does this more literally than Cut Flower Wildflower Seed Mixture. This is a mixture of annual and perennial flowers that some describe as “old fashioned” or “heirloom” flowers. Don’t be mistaken, however: This blend makes just as beautiful a bouquet during 2018 as it did a century ago!
Would your mom prefer not to keep her garden “fenced in”? If your parents have need for ground cover, our Sunburst Wildflower Cover Seed Mix provides beauty that more conventional covers cannot. The flowers in this blend—including Poppy, Petunia, and Marigold—grow in a spreading or “mounding” formation, creating a foot-tall carpet of color, wherever you need it!
