When to Sow this Mixture:Spring and Fall are the best times to seed although with proper conditions and can be seeded early or late summer too! Heat is the enemy in most cases. In spring, you can sow close to your last frost day and in fall, you should sow 8-10 weeks before your first frost so it can establish to winter over. Most of the low growing wildflowers in this mix are annuals but do reseed. We suggest a spring planting if you can.
How to Sow this Mixture:Remove all existing growth and sow evenly over the area. We suggest sowing heavily throughout the area and compressing for a good seed to soil contact without pushing the seeds beneath the soil. Keep watered and moist until the seedlings are about 4 inches high and then watering can be reduced.
How to Maintain:This lawn will not need fertilizer. Clover acts as a green fertilizer if trimmed and is great for aeration as the roots work into the soil. It is also a great nitrogen booster. Mow once in spring and once in fall. Do not use herbicides. If you see dead grass clumps, de-thatch the area. Purchase a bit extra seed of this mix to fill in any sparse areas that may occur.
