Westland’s Native Wildflower and Native Tall Grass Seed Mixes

With the local devastation that was caused by the Tornado in 2014 we thought it would be great to offer a line of Native Wildflower and Native Grassy Meadow Mixes.

New England Aster      blackeyed Susan

These mixes are blends that were picked specifically for our region, our soils and our climate. Wildflower and grass mixes are best applied in the early spring or late fall, long before you begin with potted perennials, trees and shrubs. Wildflowers and grass mixes benefit from being spread in March/April because: 1) The cool nights help trigger the seeds dormancy requirements 2) The seeds are dispersed while the spring thaw is still occuring making sure there is ample water available for germination 3) All weed seeds were distributed in the fall and throughout the winter, so it gives the wildflowers a competitive chance.
