A bit more about the Seed Pops method…since the seeds are encased in clay, they are protected from being eaten by birds, squirrels, and other wildlife, and from being wind-blown or washed away. With exposure to rain and sunlight, the clay and compost provide all the nourishment the seeds need to sprout. After several rains, the materials will break down, and the seeds will begin to grow.
There are many benefits to planting these native wildflowers. They offer all-season beauty, landscape interest, and attract birds, bees, butterflies, and other important pollinators. Wildflowers can enhance the biodiversity of a site, improve the soil, aid in stormwater filtration, and help with erosion control. We specify native regional seeds because they attract native pollinators, help keep invasive plants at bay, and won’t displace other beneficial native plants.
