Native Southwest Wildflower Seeds
Our studio is located in the desert southwest of Arizona, and we are doing a little give-away for those who visit us at our art shows this season...
We wanted to share a little bit of our native desert color and beauty with you - enjoy this gift....
A hardy blend of native wildflowers that has proven to tolerate the extreme weather conditions of the Southwest, whether it's long periods of drought or heavy periods of rain. This mix contains 18 annual species for first year color and 8 perennial varieties for color beginning in the second season and beyond.
Don't be surprised if you see your annuals reseed as this is quite common in areas with mild winters.
Easy to grow, good for Cut Flowers, Extended Bloom Time, High Impact Low Maintenance.
Step-by-Step Wildflower Seed Planting Instructions
1. Fall is the perfect time for seeding here in Arizona. Choose a spot on your property that gets 6 or more hours of direct sun a day. Seeds can be sown in ground or consider a pot, if you are able to provide more moisture regularly.
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. We recommend lightly compressing the seeds into the soil, making sure not to bury them. Walk on them, or use a board to press down.
4. 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. In the lower elevations, you will need to water occasionally to maintain the best plant health.
5. Enjoy the show!
