|Common name||Wildflower Mix : Southeastern Flowers|
|Germination||Because of the mild temperatures, Southeastern wild gardeners can plant in either spring or fall. Late March through April is best for spring, and early October into November is best for putting in fall plantings.The most common mistake when planting wildflower seeds is not getting rid of the existing weed and native grass seeds that are in the soil. First, choose a site in full sun. To get rid of existing weeds, hand-cultivate the soil to a depth of 1 in. and remove all weeds. Before sowing the wildflower seeds, rake the soil to form shallow grooves. To ensure even distribution of seed, mix with four times its volume of sand or vermiculite and broadcast by hand. Then rake the seed lightly into the soil and tamp it for good soil contact. If rains don't come, water to keep soil moist until plants begin to grow. After plants are established water only as necessary. When the plants have dried and dropped their seed, cut old stalks to 3 to 6 inches high.
