Looking for suggestions on hand-seeding a recommended perennial seed mix - no machinery beyond my own hand and perhaps a bowl with a seed/soil mix .

Appreciate suggestions - what's worked best for you?.

These "whirly gigs" work very well for me. Control by adjusting the opening, speed of turning the crank, and walking speed. Very effective.

I use it to spread all kinds of cover crop seed mixes, spread ag. lime, spread epsom salts, etc.

Clover, hemp, peas, rye, wheat, oats, turnips, radishes, vetch, seeds in mix or alone. Works great for me.

I have 2 or 3 of those hand crank spreaders but I prefer to just use this for seeds:

Mind you I'm not sowing acres of land but a thousand of feet or so. If for some reason I have to spread an ant killer or something poisonous, I would use a hand crank spreader.
