easy sow flower seeds?
Posted by Lynn (buddhalife@GMAIL.COM) from PA Zone 6 on 2009-02-22 05:05:00

I have an acre that I'd like to sow some easy to grow flower seeds on. I can water them a bit but once they're up, they're on their own. Needs:
full sun
drought tolerant
deer resistant
reseeds itself (not necessary)
Clayish soil
strong and can compete with grasses and weeds.
I'll rake the spots clean of grasses before I broad cast them. I spent $100 on seeds last year and nothing came up despite our wet spring.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
