Every Spring I kick myself because I didn’t plant Bluebonnets in time to see them bloom. Not this year!

According to KVUE, The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has published a web page to help gardeners plant wildflowers, because if you live in Central Texas, now is the time to start planting so you can enjoy them come spring.

According to the U.S Department of Agriculture, central Texas wildflower seeds should be planted between now and Dec. 1 if you want to see them in all their glory in Spring 2020. Plant 20 seeds per square foot. Be sure to water the seeds every day for about three weeks after you plant them.

It is my hope that a majority of Texans will read this post and plant their own Bluebonnets in their own yards for the coming Spring. Doing so will spare the kids the embarrassment of Mama telling them to get out of the car on that busy highway to pose in a bunch of flowers.
