Fall and Spring are the best times to plant wildflowers. Fall planted seeds do not need to be irrigated and should be planted late (even into the winter). This is so the soil is too cold for the seeds to germinate (40 degrees F or less). The seeds will stay dormant in the soil until it warms up in the spring.
In areas that do not get late Spring or Summer rains, Spring-planted wildflowers will need to be irrigated until they bloom and set seed the first year, but they will naturalize to grow with winter rains in following years. Wildflowers grow best on sites with full sun, low nitrogen, low soil fertility and with existing stands of shorter grasses for soil stabilization.
NOTE to Certified Organic Growers: The seed in this mix is conventional seed, but the legumes in the mix are coated with Nitro-Coat Organic, which is an OMRI listed coating. This coating uses all organic ingredients: the proper rhizobacteria, a Calcium Carbonate coating that is naturally water absorbing to speed seed germination, and an OMRI listed organic adhesive.
