Q: When will this item be available again? Best guess. It was available yesterday and I was going to order some today.
A: You haven't missed out. We're still harvesting seed, so it will be available soon. November-December is the best time to purchase this mix because most of the year's harvest will be processed by then. It will likely be available within the next few weeks, regardless. It is usually blended in 50-pound batches and we go through several different blends throughout the season.
Q: Will this seed mix wor wel on a 30 degree slope?
A: You could grow a thin cover crop of annual rye to create some thatch that will help hold the seed in place.
Q: Would 50 packets of deep soil wildflower seed mix ($2.50 ea.) be available by Jan. 1?
A: Yes. We should have a new batch ready next week.
Q: what is the pricing on this item when it becomes available? is by the packet the only option or can it be purchased in larger quantity?
A: It varies from batch to batch, but usually $100 to $130 per pound. It can be purchased in larger quantities. Check for new stock in October.
Q: If I order the deep soil mix, can I delay shipment or can you suggest how I store the seed until ready to plant?
A: During the checkout process, you can indicate when you would like to receive the order. Seed can be stored dry at room temperature (or colder) away from direct sunlight.
Q: do you till the seed under or sow it on top of the ground
A: Sow it on top of bare soil anytime from late November through January for best results. Tilling the soil could expose weed seeds.
Q: I plan to sow 1 pound of the deep soil seed mix on 0.2 acres.
I wanted to put a native grass in with the wildflowers and was thinking little blue stem.
I don't want grass to overtake the wildflowers. Any suggestions for grasses?
A: A 2 to 4 ounces of little bluestem shouldn't overtake the wildflowers.
Q: I would like to order 1 pound of the deep soil mix. Can I place an order that could be filled in the near future?
A: Yes. It is now in stock. We make several batches as needed between October and March (it should be sown between November and February).
