Diversity is essential for a healthy garden. We always interplant an abundance of flowers and vegetables with our cannabis. This builds healthy soil and attracts beneficial insects and pollinators like bees and butterflies, who keep pests and other problems in check without the need for any harmful chemicals. And of course, flowers and veggies bring joy and nourishment to the humans who tend and visit the garden.

We're excited to offer our own seasonal flower seed mixes, hand-harvested from the annual flowers and herbs grown at our farm. You'll find them at dispensary giveaways and demos. These are easy to grow, colorful mixes, and are appropriate for most California climates. Just one packet will add a smile to your garden (or your sunny porch or deck)!

The list below starts with our current mix and works back through 2021 (the seeds will stay good for about a year in cool, dark storage):

No. 5 and Summer Flower Mixes: "Summer" is the new (and better) name for the No. 5 mix of summer-blooming plants. These include Sunflowers, Cilantro, Tilthonia and wildflowers including California Poppy, Plains Coreopsis, Phacelia, Borage, Bachelor Buttons, Cosmos, Yarrow and other surprises. You can plant these mixes from April through August.

Spring 2022 and Hall of Flowers 2021 Mixes include Calendula, California Poppy, Borage, Cilantro, Yarrow and whatever other wildflower seeds made their way into the batch! In coastal temperate zones (from central Cal-south), this mix can be planted September through late April. In less temperate or northerly coastal zones, plant in September-October, then hold off until March. Note that some of these flowers may not bloom over winter, but they will establish and bloom when the weather signals are right.

No. 4-20 Flower Mix includes a bright and happy combination of Sunflower, Zinnia, Bachelor Buttons, Coreopsis, California Poppy, Phacelia, and the dramatic Tithonia (Mexican Sunflower). Plant 4-20 through early summer.

No. 3 Spring-Early Summer Garden Mix includes Sunflowers, Bachelor Buttons, Zinnias, California Poppy, Tithonia, Borage, Cilantro, Baby's Breath, White Yarrow, California Blue Bell, Coreopsis, Scarlet Flax, Corn Poppy, Baby Blue Eyes, Godetia, and other fun insect-attracting plants. Plant March through June.

  • Plant in full sun to mostly sun.
  • Prepare an area approximately 10-12 square feet. This can be a 1' x 12' row or multiple pots; whatever fits your space.
  • Weed the bed to remove competition for the flowers.
  • Lightly rake/cultivate the top two inches to loosen the soil. Make sure to stay shallow.
  • Sprinkle the seeds over the area. They are tiny and odd-shaped, but they will grow into substantial plants.
  • No need to press the seeds into the soil, as the watering will do that. The larger sunflower seeds might like a little more coverage -- you can press them down to the depth of your first knuckle.
  • Cover with a quarter inch of soil. This is optional if the seeds are well watered-in, but it won't hurt.
  • Seeds need moisture to germinate, so keep the area moist by watering daily until they germinate.
  • Germination time will range from 3-21 days, so be patient as more pop up over the weeks.
  • If you'd like more detailed guidance on planting and ways to work in your own local climate, there are abundant resources online that will take you through the process step by step.
  • Enjoy!
