That would certainly be an interesting experiment, maybe with any surplus seeds. Only thing would be weed seedlings coming up, apart from ones you're familiar with, but could be fun 👍😊🌸😀 @cyndi

Im sorta thinking in my smaller rose bed. Small space and might look good coming up through the roses. And it will fill up the "dead space" what ya think? Plus better control if weeds do pop up. Can deweed that small bed real well b4 hand to help more.

Worth a try, but not a lot you can do with weed seeds already there, but sounds interesting 👍

I love these!! I planted some and they didn't come up 😞 I used to get so many compliments and asking what are those strange looking things.
