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.
 
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 packet covers about 25 square feet.
  • 1 ounce per 755 square feet
  • 1 pound per 12,100 square feet
  • 3.6 pounds per acre

These species prefer plenty of sunlight and moderate moisture.
