    • Got these last year, and they came up great! Dinner plate sized flowers, 2m tall. Bees loved them, but squirrels loved them even more.

      Managed to save a decent number of seeds, but I could always use more. Thanks!

      "Missing information, please check fields."

      Not sure whats up with that?

    • I really want to like this campaign but I can't. The problem is that in some ecosystems those wildflowers could become invasive. I think Cheerios would be better off partnering with a seed supplier to offer seed packets based on your region, or giving a heavy discount code/coupon so people can buy the right seeds for their area.

      But the hats are cool!

      Please stop spreading this misinformation.

      First, the seeds in previous years were not invasive. They were poorly labelled, and that lead to confusion as to exactly what species were included. At worst the seeds were not suited for every area, and I agree that they could have done better providing locally tailored seeds.

      Second, the seeds last year, this year, and presumably going forward are common annual sunflowers. Great for bees, and other pollinators, and not invasive.

    • That's a good update, thank you for that.

    • Did you know 1 of 3 bites of food we eat is made possible by bees and other pollinators? Bee populations in Canada remain unstable. It's time to be a Keeper and help Bring Back the Bees!

    • They're offer a free shipping code by the looks of it... thought the seeds were free.
