While last fall's catalog was being printed over Labor Day weekend, the disastrous Bastrop and several south and east Texas fires broke out. For erodible slopes in these sandy regions visited by intense wildfire, we have responded to your many requests by offering the ‘Southeast Recovery Mix’.
Pine trees in the background, this sandy grassland has Little Bluestem and a diversity of other native grasses and forbs (above)
Native seed mixture for sandy, neutral to slightly acid soils recently impacted by wildfires in the Bastrop Lost Pines, Oakwoods Prairie, Pineywoods and Gulf Coast Prairie eco-regions. Species include 56 wildflowers and prairie grasses known to thrive in sandy areas east of IH 35.
Re-seeding may be important in soil stabilization on highly erodible, steep slopes. Give new life to your patch of earth and help return your ecosystem to a healthy functioning condition.
Note: Do No Harm..."I would recommend against any non-native seed whether it be perennial or annual ... I think we will do more harm by adding non natives in an attempt to aid recovery." -- Rich Gray, Texas Forest Service, Oasis Wildfire
*** In respect of our long partnership with TPWD and our shared concern for the management of Bastrop and Buescher State Parks, please consider maintaining appropriate buffers to all lands that are adjacent to the parks when introducing seeds or plants into the landscape. Also, please give appropriate consideration to those private lands sharing upstream drainages, creeks or areas where run-off to the parks could become an issue in future restoration efforts. ...read more on Bastrop State Park and the 500-year Recovery from Wildfire
