Instructions: Broadcast seed thinly and evenly over prepared soil. Rake in lightly, covering seed no deeper than 1/8 inch. For best germination, soak planted area thoroughly and maintain consistent moisture for 4 to 6 weeks, then gradually reduce watering.
Suggestions: Ideal for gardens, meadows, sunny slopes, and low maintenance areas. A minimum of 4 hours sunlight daily assures best results. Many wildflowers are drought resistant and will survive reduced water. In arid climates or during drought conditions, up to 1/2 inch of supplemental water per week may be required. It is helpful to mix clean, dry sand with the seed. We recommend 1 to 2 parts sand to 1 part seed.
