We sing praises about native grasses and wildflowers everyday and now we're shouting from the heart of the prairie because Ohio is one of the first states in the country to have an entire month dedicated to native plants. We thank our friends Nancy Linz and Hope Taft for working so hard to get this passed into law and trusting us to create a mix that supports birds, insects and wildlife, creates forarging for pollinators and has an overall positive impact on the environment.

You can learn more about Ohio Native Plant Month here and share your Ohio Native Plant Month activity with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using #ONPM. Prairie On all April long! For every Ohio Native Plant Month mix or packet sold, OPN Seed will donate a portion back to the ONPM initiative.

Seed Info

PLS Lbs. Per Acre Broadcast = 10

PLS = Pure Live Seed

Pure Live Seed is a measure of viable seed stated as a percentage. It is the product of total germination times purity.

Example: 96% Germination x 93% Purity = 89% PLS

All of our native warm season grasses and seed mixes are sold PLS.

Broadcast seeding is the process of sowing seed by hand. The seeds are sprinkled into the soil and can be lightly raked to ensure germination.
