Did you know that Fall and Winter are excellent times to sow seed?
Frost seeding can occur on a hard frost in the morning or even on a
light snow on frozen ground. The seed sets in the soil as the
soil freezes and thaws. The cold moist conditions during
winter acts to stratify the seed allowing it to begin
the germination cycle. When spring comes and
the soil warms up, the seed completes germinating
and the plant begins to grow.
Plant your seed after the soil temperatures have dropped
below 50 degrees Fahrenheit in the fall or winter.
By planting then, you will be ensured of optimal natural processes
to break the germination code
for your wildflower seed and insure spring sprouting of your seeds.
So order your seed today!

Iowan’s Plant Natives at Half the Cost Article

Iowan’s are planting native wildflowers and grasses at one half the cost of the seed.  Through a special program and a cooperative effort amongst private growers, Iowa DNR and Pheasants Forever, it is possible to get a voucher to add much diversity to your landscape using species that are native to Iowa.  This is a one of a kind program that benefits everyone involved.  It provides wildlife cover for pheasants, deer, rabbits and a host of beneficial insects including butterflies, moths and many other pollinators.  The natives include such species as Indian Grass and Big Bluestem which root down to enormous depths into the soil which control erosion much better than European imports such as Broom Grass.

Iowa witnessed one of the largest and fastest ecosystem loss in the world as the Tallgrass Prairie was very quickly turned into corn production.  Millions of acres of black rich soil that had been created by the deep-rooted prairie has now vanished.

Thanks to this special Habitat Program created by the  cooperation of Iowa Landowners, Iowa Native Seed Growers, The Iowa DNR and Pheasants Forever, the once lost Tallgrass Prairie is returning to once again replenish precious topsoil and control erosion.
