PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS

Plant seed mix in an open, sunny location with medium to medium-dry soil. The seedbed should be free of established vegetation, which can be controlled through repeated tilling (cultivation), smothering or herbicide. Sow mix evenly and lightly rake or firm seed into soil surface.

Best planted mid-October through November (Fall), or early winter, which will allow seed to cold moist stratify. Seed mixes can also be planted in early spring.

Trim weed growth to 5" through the first growing season.

Hand weed in following seasons. Be patient, some species take three or more years to reach blooming maturity.
