Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District is excited to announce a new fundraiser – native wildflower seeds. October is the perfect month to sow wildflower seeds for spring growth. Want to develop a big flower garden without planting and tending to dozens of plants? Replace some of your lawn with a meadow! Create a pollinator strip between your street and property/lawn. Overseed an existing meadow to fill in the gaps. Whether you’re seeding a small space garden, filling in a side yard, or planting across acres of land, wildflowers are an easy-to-grow solution and supportive of pollinators.
They offer three seed mixes in one-ounce packages:
Showy New England Wildflower & Grasses Mix
The native wildflowers and some grasses provide a gorgeous display of color from spring to fall. Designed for upland sites with well-drained soils and full sun to semi-shaded areas; ideal for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds.
New England Annual & Perennial Mix
This seed mix offers plants that will be showy the second year and beyond, changing color and texture as they mature. Designed for upland sites and meadows; ideal for attracting native pollinators.
Butterfly & Hummingbird Mix
Designed specifically to attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and other native pollinators, this seed mix is best for upland sites and meadows.
