Sow seeds in well prepared soil with weeds and grass removed. Seed is best sown from fall through spring and will germinate in late spring/early summer without any additional treatment. If sowing in summer, irrigate the seeded area regularly to maintain the adequate moisture needed for germination. Once established native prairie plants do not require irrigation, pruning or any other maintenance. Some species in the seed mix may take several years to become noticeable and flower while others will grow best during the first few years. Dead stalks may be removed at the end of the growing season or left standing to provide resources for native birds and insects. All of the plants in this mix are native perennials and will reseed naturally. One seed packet is recommended to cover an area up to 25 sq. ft.
