Wet soil seed mix
Our wet 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.  There are also a few sedges/rushes. 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.
 
Seed:  Many of the species need a cold, moist period of stratification. Sow seed between November and February.
