The rain garden mix is our catchall mix for any wetlands and marshy areas. It can even handle some temporary seasonal flooding. The species in this mix are well-adapted to fluctuating water levels.
Our seed was produced by Shooting Star Native Seeds in Spring Grove, MN.
GROWING TIPS: Broadcast seed over prepared area in the fall sometime before the ground freezes, so the seeds can go through natural winter stratification. Tamp it down for good seed to soil contact. You can sprinkle hay or straw over the planting for mulch coverage, if you want.
