Ed's Special Advice
After plants become established, water only as necessary. Remove weeds from wildflower garden as they appear. Mowing plants in the fall helps scatter seeds and provides some mulch cover during winter. Resowing seeds into the wildflower garden each spring helps maintain best color and species diversity for a fuller more beautiful wildflower display.
