Our wet soil mix provides color from early May into October and attracts many kinds of wildlife. It consists nearly entirely of perennials with a few annuals or biennials that will provide some color while the perennials get established. This mix should be sown in late fall or winter--early February at the latest. Seed sown after February may not get the cold moist treatment (stratification) that it needs in order to germinate. Here are some more tips: Seeding Wildflowers & Grasses.
Contents of the mix vary due to availability.
