Free Native Seeds and Guide

Plant these seeds ASAP. Note – this was in March.
You may not get many blooms the first year, but they should bloom well in year two.
Make sure the planting area is clear of weeds and grass.
There are approximately 300 seeds, so give them as much space as you can.
I like to mix the seeds with potting mix which has perlite so the area is easy to see.
Cover the seeds lightly after sowing.
