Cold Stratification or Direct Sowing: Recommended. Native Northeast American Wildflower Seed Mix
Direct sow seeds in fall and allow seeds to naturally cold stratify. I recommend sowing these seeds, direct in Fall on a prepared seedbed or garden container, water well, and protect from winter weather with a fabric fleece if some seeds germinate early.
Also known as cold stratitication and can be completed anytime of the year by placing seed packs in a cool drawer of a refrigerator for 4-12 weeks to break seed dormancy.
1) Sow Native Northeast American Wildflower Seed Mix direct in a prepared weedfree seedbed in Fall or Spring
2) Watch for seedlings germinating and remove any aggressive unwanted weed seeds
3) Water well during pro-longed dry spells, cutting back the spent flower stems will encourage re-growth
4) Deadhead Native Northeast American Wildflower Seed Mix to prolong flowering or allow to set seed for the next generation of plants or to share amongst neighbors and friends
