Anyone try those multi-flower Garden rolls/mats?

I keep seeing these things where you roll out this mat that contains various seeds and you just water and they are supposed to grow lots of flowers in that area. Have you had success with these?

  • Seems every catalog that comes has these but I've never known anyone who tried them. Almost sounds too good to be true. Sure hope somebody can give us the inside info.

  • I did one for wild flowers, some of them came up others didn't. It was really patchy looking.. but the area I put it in was really shady and I just wanted to give it a little color, and got it for a gift so I wouldn't go by my experience. lol.

  • I hated it. Complete waste of money. All I grew was weeds that were probably there before the mat ever was.
