How To Grow Native mixes do best when planted in the fall, between Oct. 15th and Nov. 15th. Late fall sowings additionally stratify the seed. An early spring sowing in April will work but not as effectively. If ideal growing conditions are unavailable, the seed may go dormant and not germinate until the spring of the following year. Site Preparation Remove weeds by hand or apply an organic non-selective herbicide. Loosen soil to 2.5 cm (1") depth with a stiff rake, cultivator or hoe. Prairie flowers and grasses will germinate and establish themselves much better when planted into a bed of well drained soil, rather than compost or dense compacted topsoil. Broadcast the seed and let mother nature do the rest. Smaller seeds can be mixed with dry sand to improve distribution when sowing. Rain, snow and frost-heaving of the soil will work the seed down into the soil bed. If you choose to do a spring planting, make sure the seed comes into good contact with the soil & irrigate as needed.
