ONPM Pocket Pollinator Garden Seed Mix

April is Ohio Native Plant Month and we're introducing a new mix for 2021! The Pocket Pollinator Garden Mix was designed to turn small areas of your lawn into pollinator habitat with shorter growing grasses and wildflowers. Plant this mix in areas that receive at least 6 hours of sunlight a day and watch it come alive over time with bees, butterflies, birds and more! Contains a mix of annual and perennial wildflowers and shorter growing native grasses.

This year Ohio Native Plant Month like to see how much lawn area in Ohio we can convert to healthy native plant habitats. If you replace some lawn in 2021, please write to send us a picture (no people please) and tell us the number of square feet you converted. Pictures can be emailed to OhioNativePlantMonth@gmail.com

Creating a bed for these seeds is easy! Here's how to Prep a Bed for Seeding or watch our tutorial on YouTube.

Some things to remember:

  • Native plant communities can take up to 3 growing seasons to fully establish. There are some annuals in this mix including Partridge Pea, Indian Blanket, Plains Coreopsis and Lemon Mint. For an added boost of first year color, we've created an ONPM Fast Flowering Seed Packet. This packet does contain some introduced non-native species, but they will not compete with the perennial wildflowers and grasses.
  • Plant this in well-drained soils and in areas that receive at least 6 hours of sunlight a day.
  • Each packet will cover approximately 250 square feet.
  • Plant height not an issue? Check out the OG Ohio Native Plant Month Seed Packet!
  • For every Ohio Native Plant Month mix or packet sold, OPN Seed will donate a portion back to the ONPM initiative.
