Wildflower Seed Mixes
Planting a wildflower mix is a good way to begin or further your wildflower education, as different flowers appear in different combinations through the spring and summer. We offer four different wildflower mixtures, each with 15-20 different species. Mixed together, they provide a unique "pointillist" visual. Some wildflower fields in nature grow with individual species in "swaths," areas of from 5 feet across to 20' across. If you'd like to try this way of growing wildflowers, check out our "Swathe 1/4."
The basic requirements are: sufficient moisture for germination and early growth, a relatively weed-free seedbed, good seed-soil contact, and sun to bring out spring bloom. In some situations, we recommend our "Seedbed Protector" to prevent birds from eating the seeds. See our "How-To Grow California Wildflowers" for more details.
