Planting & Care

PLANTING: Plant annually after danger of frost has passed. Caution: Flax can form prussic acid when exposed to frost so do not graze horses on this mix. Keep moist until germination (5-10 days) and then water regularly, depending on your soil type.

SOWING IN SOIL: Keep your birds away from the newly seeded area or they will eat the seed before it has a chance to germinate. When the mix is 2-5" tall turn the chickens loose on the planted area until they have eaten the grasses about half way down.

SOWING IN FLATS: For chickens that stay in runs, plant some Forage Blend in a 17" square flat. Add soil, sow thickly, follow the growing instructions above, then place the flat in the chicken run and let them eat it all up.
