The best Northeast Wildflower Seed Mixes
As you well know, it takes some serious grit to weather a New England winter, and these perennial wildflowers are more than cut out for the job. With low-maintenance species like New England aster, Shasta daisy, and perennial lupine, you can easily sow the seeds of future gardens with little effort on your part. Why not beautify a roadside with these hardy wildflowers especially suited for the Northeast climate (although we recommend that you check with a state official and always exercise caution around traffic).
Set a neighborhood trend with Northeast Wildflower Seed Mixes
It’s time to ditch your manicured lawn for an unruly wildflower meadow. Forgo lawnmowers and conserve water by planting wildflowers en masse for a striking display of color. Start a trend that does one better for the environment than grass ever will. Cultivate a patch of earth that provides pollinators and beneficial insects with ample food supply and a safe place to overwinter. Once your neighbors see your majestic wildflower planting (and how low maintenance it is), they’ll be quick to follow your lead.
Eden Brothers’ specialty Northeast Wildflower Seed Mixes are designed to attract pollinators native to New England, like monarch butterflies and bumblebees. Take some time out of your day to really notice the life happening all around you.
Northeast Wildflower Seed Mixes are easy to grow and maintain
No need to start these seeds indoors—wildflower seeds prefer to be directly sown in the garden in either spring or fall. Choose a planting site that has average well-draining soil and receives full sun—wildflowers can stand some shade, but the best blooming happens with six or more hours of direct sunlight. If you do have heavy shade or woodlands on your property, the Bachelor Button and Purple Coneflower in the Northeast Wildflower Seed Mix will thrive in less sunny conditions.
To sow wildflower seed mixes, simply scatter the wildflower seeds over the area, and gently press the seeds into the earth for some protection against the elements. You can mix your seeds with sand or use a seed spreader for more even coverage. If you’re not sure exactly how much seed you need to fill out your planting area, reference the Coverage tab for our recommendations.
Once you’ve sown your wildflower seeds, carefully water the seeds in and within a week or so your seeds will sprout! Wildflowers are low-maintenance plants that require little care other than the occasional watering or weeding. Once your plants start budding out, feel free to pick all the flowers you can! The more you pick, the more wildflowers will produce and the longer they’ll bloom.
As with all of Eden Brothers’ products, you can confidently place your order knowing that you’ll soon have the highest-quality seeds in your hands. All of our seeds are non-GMO and filler-free, guaranteed to grow should you follow our planting recommendations.
