  2. Dominic Guerrera on July 25, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    beautiful video – thanks for the patience to capture this on film.

    Wow! It took a long time to see the flowers bloom! I’m impatient! Haha

    i cried. i wish i had a garden. a field of beautiful flowers would be right in the center as the crown.

  5. meikusje on July 25, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    So beautiful ❤️ unfortunately, we have a few too many birds and small critters that like to eat up the seeds, so all my attempts at a similar field of flowers have failed so far 🤭 I don’t mind, critters need to eat as well. This year I’m trying pre-sowing inside and planting the flowers outside when they’re a bit bigger, now the only thing to worry about is snail attacks. Fingers crossed they’ll survive this year!

    V české republice je moderní na místa, kde je problém z travinami sázet takto okrasný a účelný trávník. Je to nádhera a hmyz má z toho užitek. Díky za fajn video.

    Where did you purchase these wild flower seeds?

  8. Whoops on July 25, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    What an amazing bed and video! I’ll definitely do it for my mini balcony garden to watch back the season ☺

  9. Claus' Carnivores on July 25, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    very nice timelapse!

    There’s something magical about wildflowers. It’s time local councils stopped mowing grass and planted wildflower seeds.

  12. Robert greer on July 25, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    Water it once and forget it?

  13. Andy Pipkin on July 25, 2022 at 10:58 pm

    amazing timelapse. I love poppies but can’t get them to grow anywhere that’s not concrete

  14. cass77788 on July 25, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    amazing, wow just beautiful! i thought about doing this in a kiddie pool!

  15. Bob on July 25, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    Every roadside should look like this.

  16. mariposita1982 on July 25, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    I wanna lay there down and sleep…

  17. Ally light on July 25, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    What brand of wild flower seeds? I live in uk and some people found no luck with certain wild flower packs but it’s come out amazing with u 🙂 X

  18. Green plant on July 25, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    How beautifully you
    captured it on camera👍👍

  19. Sheila Beard on July 25, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    I planted my babies a few months ago.Oh my God,do I love them,so awesome!

  20. James Hamilton on July 25, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Im too late to plant my seeds this year but next year im dedicating my garden to wildflowers!

  21. Gas Stop on July 25, 2022 at 11:14 pm

  22. Gökhan Kilical on July 25, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    I would love to give you a small advce for the next time you plant wild flowers 🙂 Premix the seeds in a 10:1 ratio with soil or sand and scater the mix on top of the fresh soil. This way you will have not an overdose of seeds and you plants will be able to grasp better into the soil.

    Jesus loves you and died for our sins amen

  24. Cedric Mungall on July 25, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    Great video!

    What is the latest date I can sow annual wildflower seeds in the UK to get flowers in the same year?

  25. KingTojPisces on July 25, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Too heavy of soil that is why they all fell over. Very low on native plants which actually makes it less beneficial overall ☹️

  26. thsoup on July 25, 2022 at 11:20 pm

    There’s a local house not even a mile away from mine and they’re backyard is filled luxuriously to the brim with wildflowers of all sorts and kinds. They also have many bees that pollinate the flowers and they harvest the honey from them for ten bucks for a container a bit larger than a store-bought plastic honey bear.

  27. Emily on July 25, 2022 at 11:20 pm

    Thank you for this! Really helpful to compare how well my flower garden is doing

  28. Cathy R on July 25, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    That was exhilarating! Thank you! I feel so happy right now. It’s weird!

  29. Vidya Gaems on July 25, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    Early on, they all move the same way, like budget 3D animation characters.

  30. Hello everyone!! on July 25, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Your flowers blooming are very beautiful^_^

  31. uliketen on July 25, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Loved it. Wish the deer would leave them alone

  32. Kim Williams on July 25, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    What zone you in?

  33. Samuel Desjardins on July 25, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    I feel like most people sow them way too tight. The plants seem very fragile and elongated.

  34. Alex on July 25, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    It’s somewhat wholesome to watch flowers grow from tiny little seeds to beautiful blooming specks of colour.

  35. mm 33 on July 25, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    How much weight seed was this?

  36. Albert Weis on July 25, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    Good. For. Butterflys

  37. Luis Rodriguez on July 25, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    Pikmin!!!

  38. Matea Banana on July 25, 2022 at 11:31 pm

    I’m so happy that people are grateful for people who do these timelapses. The comments seem so positive!

  39. J CR on July 25, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    Thank you for this.

  40. Peter Costello on July 25, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    Wow incredible 👏 and keeps changing something new all the time fantastic. Do you need 2 protect seedlings from slugs please. Planting tomorrow thanks so much.

  41. Dreamer_49 on July 25, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    This is really helpful. I’m designing a new pond/meadow/bog area in my garden and I didn’t realise how tall these plants are! Going to switch my bog garden and meadow round, as there’s a bench that needs a view into the pond. Cheers!

  42. Alicia DuPuy on July 25, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    Its interesting watching them lean with the sun day after day.

  43. Joyce Nesselhauf on July 25, 2022 at 11:37 pm

    Is there a particular brand or place to get these seeds or did you collect them yourself?

  44. Julio Aleman on July 25, 2022 at 11:37 pm

    Just planted mine today in raised garden bed aswell, I’m in zone 9B and it’s hot as hell down here.

  45. Seth Kellas on July 25, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    Do you chop and drop at the end of the season? Or just let the bed rest and do what it wants..

  46. QuickFix Pics on July 25, 2022 at 11:40 pm

    Gorgeous, I would love a whole field of those. What are those bright orange ones that open and close? Do they grow again next year or does it need new seeds?

  47. clive russel on July 25, 2022 at 11:41 pm

    Was a short lawn well trim guy, but I decided to dedicate half of my front yard to wild flowers this year.

  48. ZiArt Birb on July 25, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    I feel the vibration of life from this wild flower bed. Really touched my heart. Thank you!

  49. Doug Yates on July 25, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    I’m going to give it a try this year, wish me luck:)

  50. Mika Hist on July 25, 2022 at 11:48 pm
