Step 1

Rake

Rake Area

Rake area to remove dead grass and debris. Seeds grow best when they have direct contact with the soil.

Step 2

Spreader

Apply Evenly

Uniformly apply wildflower mix so the area is mostly covered, but bare ground is still visible.

Step 3

Water

Water

Water daily or as needed to keep the soil surface and wildflower seed moist for the first 2 weeks. This is critical for your wildflower seed to germinate and thrive. When enough water has been applied, Earth Science’s patented Water Right Crystals™ will expand and sparkle. When the crystals disappear it’s time to water again.

  • Apply when there is no danger of frost and daytime air temperatures are consistently above 60 degrees.
  • Butterfly & Hummingbird Mix flower varieties perform best with 6 or more hours of sunshine on average per day.
  • Do not apply herbicides 3 weeks before or after planting.
