Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I really just throw them on the ground?
A: In short, yes.
The optimum planting time depends upon your climate and average rainfall. In areas with colder winters, spring or early summer seeding is best. Spring plantings should be done as soon as the planting area can be worked, but after the last frost. Early summer plantings should only be done if rainfall patterns are anticipated or supplemental irrigation is available.
Dormant seeding can be done in late fall when temperatures are low enough that the seeds will not germinate until weather warms the following spring. In mild climates, plant fall through spring, to take advantage of winter rainfall. A fall planting allows the plants to develop and provide an earlier display of flowers in the spring. If planted in spring, make certain rainfall is expected; otherwise, supplemental irrigation will need to be supplied.
Q: How many do I need for my space?
A: Each Seedle you create will have between 5 and 25 wildflower seeds. It depends on how big you roll them, but we recommend the size of a nickel. Each Seedle can cover up to 1 square foot of space, but for a denser look of flower place 3-4 per square foot.
Q: How many does the kit include?
A: Supplies are enough to make 50-75 seed bombs, maybe a 100 if you're a pro.
Q: Which varieties of flowers are there?
A: We take the guess work out of the equation for you. We select annual and perennial native flowers that work in your bioregion based on the address you ask us to ship to. If you have an alternative destination in mind, let us know, we can make a blend for that location too!
