Can you mix flower seeds together?

by Nic13987976
i am starting a flower garden around the back perimeter of my yard I’m wondering if I can mix a lot (100s)of different seeds together to have a mixture of plants growing together or is there a better way to have a colorful row of flowers?

    Generally if you plant multiple seeds into a hole, if both plants grow out you will have to cut, kill or transplant the secondary (usually weaker) plant

      What if multiple seeds of the same flowers just different colors were planted together,

      that should be ok right? Lol

    Yes that is okay. If you want a “wildflower garden” the seeds can be added to clay balls and dropped in the area and released as rain washes away the clay. I purchased a biodegradeable mat of mixed seeds. Lay mat in bed and water allowing seeds to germinate in mat and grow. When I sprinkled a mix of seeds in a bare area none grew. My guess is they needed better soil. A link attached to get you started. Hope this helps.
