Woodland Edge Seed Packet

Didn't think you could plant wildflowers because you have too much shade? Think again. This mix is composed of all Ohio native species that can tolerate lower light levels. These species are commonly found on woodland edges as well as open meadows. Cover crops are not generally used in woodland plantings unless significant erosion potential exists. In that case, Regreen™ can be used as required. Wildflowers for all!

PLS Lbs Per Acre Broadcast = 15

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 in to ensure germination.

This mix of native grasses and wildflowers typically grows to a height of 3 to 5 feet. Please note that each site is unique and that several factors can affect overall height. These factors include sunlight, hydrology and overall soil health.
