Directions:

Growing Area: Choose a location that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Ensure the soil is well-drained and free of weeds or debris. 

Timing: It is recommended to sow the seeds in the fall and early spring for optimal results.

Soil Preparation:  Prepare the soil by removing any existing vegetation. If the soil is poor, consider adding compost or organic matter to improve fertility and moisture retention.

Seeding: Plant seeds every 6-12 inches. If you wish to broadcast the seeds over an area, you may consider mixing the seed mix with a carrier such as sand to achieve even distribution. This helps prevent clumping and allows for easier spreading. 

Planting Depth: 0-1/8". Some of the seeds in this mix require light for germination. Cover them with a thin layer of fine soil or compost and gently rake the area after broadcasting seed. Avoid burying the seeds too deeply, as it may hinder their germination and growth.

Soil Coverage: This is dependent on the spacing used. We estimate the coverage area per 1 oz of seed mix is 3,253 sq ft.

Watering: After sowing the seeds, lightly water the area to ensure good soil-to-seed contact. Keep the soil consistently moist but not saturated during the germination period, which typically takes 2-4 weeks. Once the seedlings have emerged, gradually reduce watering frequency but ensure the plants receive adequate moisture throughout their growth.

Care: Remove any competing weeds by hand to prevent them from overshadowing the wildflower seedlings. Deadhead faded flowers to encourage prolonged blooming.
