Planting Guides

Step-by-Step Wildflower Seed Planting Instructions

  1. Check for your last frost date and plant after this has passed. Choose a spot on your property that gets 6 or more hours of direct sun a day unless you are planting seeds for shade.
  2. Prepare your soil by clearing the area of all existing growth. Simply dig up everything that is growing, turn the soil and rake the area flat. If this is an area that has never before been gardened, you may need to till the area up to remove growth.
  3. Mix the seeds with sand* for better visibility and scatter the seeds directly on top of the soil. If you are sowing a larger area, we recommend using a seed spreader; if not, you can sow by hand.
  4. We recommend lightly compressing the seeds into the soil, making sure not to bury them. You can either walk on them, use a board or if you are sowing a larger area, rent a seed roller.
  5. Water so that the soil is moist, not soaking wet, until the seedlings are about 4-6" tall. After that, the seedlings will survive on natural rains. If you are experiencing very dry weather, we recommend watering occasionally.

Comments about High Country Gardens Butterfly and Hummingbird Wildflower Seed Mix:

The windflowers were abundant and beautiful. There were also a significant number of tomato seeds in the mix which was an unexpected suprise. Unfortunately the flowers did not appear to draw hummingbirds or butterflies.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Butterfly and Hummingbird Wildflower Seed Mix:

    I have an acre of old pasture land that I'm slowly converting to a mix of grasses and flowering plants. It's a bit early to see if the seed mix will be able to out-compete the pasture growth, but I expect at least some of the flowers to keep coming back. I was pleased with the germination rate, and next year I will spread the seed a bit thinner. I see this as a long term experiment, so my best review may have to wait a few years.

    Q & A

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
