Deep soil seed mix
Our deep soil mix provides color from early May into October and attracts many kinds of wildlife.  It consists nearly entirely of perennials with a few annuals or biennials that will provide some color while the perennials get established.  This mix should be sown in late fall or winter--early February at the latest. Seed sown after February may not get the cold moist treatment (stratification) that it needs in order to germinate.
 
Contents of the mix vary due to availability.  Native grasses are sold separately.
 
Seed:  Many of the species need a cold, moist period of stratification. Sow seed between November and February.
Seeding rates will yield ~30 seeds per square foot:
  • A 3- gram packet covers about 25 square feet.
  • 1 ounce per 575 square feet
  • 1 pound per 9,250 square feet
  • 4.7 pounds per acre
These species prefer plenty of sunlight and moderate moisture.
