Research indicates that the custom of giving flowers goes back to prehistoric times. As in, humanity has been giving flowers as gifts for longer than humanity has been able to write. Which is appropriate because, according to your mother, she has been putting up with you for just as long!
The Hancock family has been working with wildflowers for generations, yet the beauty of these wild blooms has never failed to touch the hearts of our mothers, the “Seed Ladies.”
A bouquet is nice, but year-round burst of color around the home and garden is even better. That’s why Hancock Seed is looking to share the love by offering 35 percent off of our most popular wildflower blends through May 14 (that’s Mother’s Day...better write it down!).
You can browse the different varieties below and find out what’s best for Mom. After all, she’s always done what’s best for you!
Hancock’s Southeast Wildflower Mixture
Our signature blend developed for neighbors in the Southeast United States, anywhere East of the Mississippi River and South of Kentucky!

Alternative Lawn Wildflower Seed Mix
Hancock Seed takes lawns seriously, so we’re not kidding when we speak about “flowering lawns!” This blend of poppies, daisies, alyssum and other seeds was originally developed as a low-lying cover crop solution. And, of course, a selection of fine fescues makes sure that everything that doesn't bloom is the verdant green you would expect from a "normal" lawn. This presents an ideal opportunity for someone who wants an extra splash of color on their green lawn!
2 lbs. of Alternative Lawn Wildflower Seed Mix covers 7,250 sq. ft., but the more dense the seeding, the more dense the color! Click here for more information!

This blend features poppies, coreopses, forget-me-nots and more!
