Q: When will this item be available again? Best guess. It was available yesterday and I was going to order some today.

Asked by: Clyde Eppard - 9/16/2017
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.

A: A 2 to 4 ounces of little bluestem shouldn't overtake the wildflowers.
