Description

A healthy blend of over 30 types of native wildflowers and grasses! Perennials and annuals, warm season and cool season. This is our most nutritious blend of natives. It provides habitat, nectar and food for many creatures of the wild such as songbirds and butterflies. The people before us were a walking people. Many of our present-day roads in fact originated footpaths. It may be as it once was, that we become a walking people again someday.

Have no trail? Create a pocket prairie. Any parcel of land looking to become a wildflower meadow will qualify. This offering comes compete with a sprinkling of native prairie grasses. Perfect for creating your own pocket prairie. The concept of pocket prairies was introduced to encourage individual homeowners and gardeners to help reverse the dramatic plunge in biodiversity. Pocket prairies are simply a prairie ecosystem shrunk down to fit in a small area. The addition of these pocket prairies to the average homeowner’s landscape increases the diversity of birds, butterflies, and many other living things in urban areas where their populations are threatened. Even though pocket prairies are small, they serve as wildlife corridors throughout a city and seed banks for future restoration projects. Look around you, chances are there is wildlife desperate for native vegetation. Bees trying to pollinate trashcans, birds scavenging for french fries in the concrete deserts, butterflies aimlessly fluttering with nowhere to rest, feed, or lay their eggs.
