Jonathan Green Wild Flowers and Meadow Grass Mixture

Product Description

Jonathan Green’s Wildflower and Meadow Grass Mix contains over 25 annual and perennial wildflowers, hard fescue grass seed, and birdsfoot trefoil creating a beautiful wildflowers and meadow grass landscape. This seed mixture has the ability to reseed itself and birdsfoot trefoil grows bright yellow flowers. This is the ideal seed mixture to plant in areas that you don’t want to mow, such as on slopes or in poor soils that you can’t maintain.

The annual wildflowers produce flowers the first year and the perennial wildflowers will reseed themselves, providing even more color and beautiful blooms every year after. The flowers in this mixture like full sun best but some grasses, such as hard fescue and birdsfoot trefoil, will grow in partial shade. Wildflower and Meadow Grass Mix does not need to be fertilized. This seed germinates in 21-40 days.

    For the best results, follow the directions below for establishing a new lawn or overseeding an existing one.

    Prepare:

    Select – Pick a sunny, well-drained site where wildflowers will thrive.  When wildflowers are planted in low-lying, poorly drained, moist areas, weeds will outcompete the wildflowers.

    Apply – Apply a herbicide to eliminate any vegetation which may compete with the wildflowers.

    Mow – Mow or cut down existing or unwanted vegetation as short as possible, then clear away from the site.

    Rake – Rake to loosen the surface of the ground, of the planting area, with a metal rake to a maximum depth of one inch, remove any debris, then smooth out any depressions to make the seedbed level.

    Seed: Combine – Combine the seed with a carrier such as sand or a new seeding fertilizer.

    When to apply – Wildflower seeds are best planted in May or June but maybe spread in late November through December as well.  When spread before a snowfall, the seeds will lie in the ground dormant until germination occurs when the soil temperatures rise in the spring.

    Seed – Use a spreader to seed in two directions, north to south and east to west.

    Rake seed – Press the seed into the soil by walking or using a lawn roller. Do not cover the seed deeper than one-sixteenth of an inch.  Some of the seeds will be visible.

    Maintain:

    Water – Irrigate the seeding with ½ to 1 inch of water weekly for the first 4 – 6 weeks until the wildflowers establish.
