Question: Why such a broad range on the seeding rate?
Answer: Wild flower seed planting applications vary tremendously from the back yard flower bed to the 5 acre meadow. Various seeding rates are needed depending on the type of application you are considering. For your specific application use this for your guideline:

  • For a meadow look with scattered wildflowers using the lower end of the seeding rate
  • For an average display with good coverage use the middle range of the seeding rate
  • For a lush stand with almost solid wildflowers choose the upper end of the seeding rate
