NOTE

Seeds are packed with a larger quantity of milled rice hulls to help space the tiny seeds when scattering. Before opening, shake the can thoroughly to mix them together so when you cast the seeds they are spaced with room for the plants to grow.

 

HOW TO PLANT

As soon as the ground can be worked in early spring, plant the seeds in ordinary garden soil in full sun. In mild climates, where the ground does not freeze hard in winter, seeds can also be planted in late fall to over-winter and bloom the next spring. To prepare the planting area: remove all weeds, grass and large stones. Break up soil clumps and evenly loosen the top 2 inches of soil with a rake. Shake the can thoroughly before opening, then scatter the contents thinly and evenly over the prepared ground. Using your rake, cover the seed mixture 1/4 inch deep and lightly firm the soil. Water with a gentle mist thoroughly and evenly. Keep the soil moist while awaiting germination and while the seedlings are small.

 

GROWING NOTES

When wildflower plants are mature they can handle somewhat dry conditions but will thrive and bloom much longer if watered regularly. For indoor bouquets, cut the flowers as blossoms open. At season’s end, let spent flowers form pods and drop seeds to bloom again the next spring.
