    This may sound ignorant, but I have read many sites that use "double-sided tape." Do you need to just be extra careful so that the tape doesn't overlap? I'm envisioning seeds being STUCK to the tape....Hmm....

    The seed packet idea is wonderful. In Texas, we love our wildflowers and to give each guest wildflowers that they can cast to the wind, would be a place that I would come to every year to see the progress of the flowers.
