Pond Edge Mix

Creating a pocket prairie around a pond edge is easy with our Pond Edge Seed Packet. Each packet covers approximately 250 square feet and the native grasses and wildflowers in this mix grow well around a mostly dry pond edge that can see water a few times per year for short durations.
