Thank you for your question. Regarding deer resistant varieties it's best to search the internet and find what people in your region are stating as deer resistant then compare to our mix. Sorry that's not the exact answer your looking for however we find pending on region your located in some varieties work better than others. Do note we find there are no 100% deer-resistant plants. If the deer herd is large enough, and food is scarce, deer will eat anything. Also even if it states the variety is deer resistant, the plant is still vulnerable the first few weeks after sprouting or when their leaves are nitrogen-rich.
Regarding the mix the last we stated on 4/19/16 is the most current. Hope this helps and our best to you this gardening season. Read Less

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed I followed the growing instructions to the letter. I planted the mixture over 1 month ago and there is nothing growing. I have been gardening for over 50 years and would like to think I am experienced. This product disappointed me very much and I would not recommend this to anyone. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patience yields great rewards We found that we needed to be patient for this product to produce results. It wasn't until mid-June (in northeast Kansas) that we began to experience growth. Since then, we have been so pleased with our wildflower garden. July 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I'm going to have flowers galore!! Easy to spread the wealth of seeds around. I expect to have an abundance of visitors to my garden soon. July 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Colorful flowers These seeds will be beautiful in our spring garden! April 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy, Gorgeous Colors I grew these a couple of years ago in my first small garden. The shaker bag was ridiculously easy to use, although I think I went a bit overboard on releasing the seeds. They were super easy to grow (almost too easy! I had to trim back some of the morning glories to keep them in control!) and all of the colors were vibrant and complimentary. I've since moved and now have about three times the gardening space and can't wait to replant this mix. A neat garden with a few trellis' for the vines would be a great way to get a little taste of gardening without spending two hours a day in the yard. March 24, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by just planted some so not sure yet but do see a couple of seedlings just planted about a week ago so too early to tell but do see a couple of seedlings sprouting June 19, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Just Waiting for Seeds to Sprout to Beauty! I've planted the seeds and just waiting for them to grow! May 24, 2012
