Why purchase wildflower seed that I have to mix with filler?
Most wildflower seeds are sold in bags or tubs that contain filler. If the seed is not used right away or is stored for too long, the filler takes the moisture out of the seed and the seed declines in viability. Use only the seed you need for the job and then as long as the bag is resealed and kept in a cool dark place, it can be stored for years without losing viability.

Please Note: Beginning in September, many plants begin to go dormant.
Some plants may have already dropped their leaves, died back to the ground or are beginning to turn yellow when they arrive to you. Deciduous trees, shrubs, perennials and groundcovers do go dormant.
This is a normal stage for plants at this time of the year. Plant upon arrival as roots continue to grow while the ground is warm. Some plants require seasonal maintenance and may have been pruned.
