Fall Seeding for Spring Diversity

P1010434Sow your wildflowers this fall with seed! Mid to late autumn can be a great time to create a lasting impression with native plants. If you are thinking of starting a prairie, savanna, or woodland, fall seed installation can encourage more wildflower diversity at your site. Some advantages to fall seeding:
