That's right dovefromabove, I find this with all the boxes of 'wildflower seeds that I buy. The box this one comes from was bought from Lidl. Also, as I've mentioned on other threads a lot of the seeds are not wildflowers but are garden cultivars, such as calendula, clarkia et al.
It still makes for a great display and many of them are insect friendly, so I don't think the bees mind! Different for the butterflies though, many of which need native plants to feed and breed.
The reason I buy these boxes is that they are very cheap and cover between 20 - 60m square. I'm unemployed at the moment so I can't afford to buy from those companies that sell native wildflower seed, where prices are about £5 for 10g of mixed seed and £1.25 for 1g of individual seeds.
