How To Store Your Seed for Spring Planting

With the fall Wildflower planting season in full swing, many gardeners ask us what to do with their leftover seed. Storing seed for next season is extremely easy and effective; simply place the seed in a ziploc bag or tupperware, making sure to label it clearly, and store in a room-temperature area.

The Three Most Important Steps to a Successful Wildflower Meadow

We’re frequently asked to go over the step-by-step process of planting a Wildflower meadow with gardeners. In fact, it’s one of the most common questions I received while working in customer service for over 3 years. Although all of the steps are important, I wanted to highlight the three most important steps so you’ll know to take extra care to do everything right during these parts of the process. You’ll be thrilled that you did when your meadow is bursting in blooms!
