These annual / perennial wild flower mixtures were designed to fit a broad cross-section of conditions that generally exist within a given geographic region. They contain both native and non-native wildflowers. Non-native species were chosen on the basis of their versatility or ability to adapt to various conditions and to provide more balance and color. This mix, containing 21 species, will provide you with great annual color, right from the beginning, and a particularly permanent selection of hardy perennials that increase over the years. Hardiness zones: 3-7 (-37°C/-35°F, -15°C/ 5°F) in winter. The northeast region summer temperatures are around 80-94°F (26-34°C) during the day and around 62-70°F (16-21°C) at night. The northeastern states enjoy four distinct seasons with variable weather. Rainfall varies from over 50 inches annually in some coastal areas, to 32 inches in the western part. Snowfall can range from over 100 inches per year to only trace amounts in the coastal areas. Do not fertilize wildflowers unless the soil is extremely depleted of nutrients. Fertilizers encourage weed growth and lush foliage rather than flowers. If the soil needs improvement, we suggest adding organic matter such as weed-free grass clippings, well rotted compost or peat moss. The wild flowers need to be watered regularly during the summer to keep the plants at their peak. To aid in natural reseeding and to keep a neat appearance, you can mow the flowers after they have gone to seed and lost their bloom. Mow them at a height of 4-6 inches-mowing below 3 inches could damage the perennial flowers.

Germination First remove existing vegetation to avoid competition from other plants. This may be done by pulling, tilling under, or spraying with a general herbicide. Next prepare the seed bed by raking the soil to a maximum of one inch. Shallow soil preparation will limit disturbance of dormant weed seed. After your ground is cleared and weed free, you will apply your seed. For small areas, broadcast the seed by hand. For larger areas we recommend using a carrier such as clean, dry sand to help in even distribution. Use a ratio of 2 parts sand to 1 part seed when broadcasting or using a drop or cyclone seeder. Lightly cover the seed no more than 1/4 of an inch by raking or dragging. All seeds, including wildflowers, need ample moisture to germinate and develop into healthy seedlings. Best results will be obtained by soaking the planted areas thoroughly and maintain consistent moisture for 4-6 weeks; then gradually reducing the watering. If you can't water, plant the seeds prior to rain season. Fall plantings should be done late enough so that the seeds do not germinate until spring. In mild climates, plant in the cooler months of the year, fall through spring. Early plantings should be done when warm spring weather and adequate rainfall will accelerate germination
and seed growth.
