Autumn is an ideal time to start a wildlflower meadow and broadcast our Southeastern wildflower seed mix in a "natural area" in your backyard. In nature, wildflowers drop seeds at the end of their season. These seeds either germinate in the fall and are small, cold-hardy plants that grow and bloom in late spring and early summer, or the seeds sit in the ground all winter before germinating in springtime when the ground warms to their ideal temperature. Sowing seeds in the autumn mimics these natural conditions better than a spring sowing!
Prepare a nice seedbed with loosely cultivated soil and minimal leaves/debris so that your seeds have great soil contact. Broadcast your mixture (or plant rows, if desired) so that seeds fall a couple inches apart. ⠀
In addition to the Southeastern Native Mixture, we have mixes for cut flowers, partial shade, beneficial insects, and more at #RenfrowHardware.⠀🌱🌼🌸
