want to plant prairie flowers in my field how?
I have a 5 acre area that is not farmed, and it is mostly the tall grass that is growing there. I want to plug in some coneflowers, and other native plants, but don't want to kill all the vegetation there. Should I just spot treat with roundup where I want to put these plants, or could I use simazine, which lasts a lot longer. I think simazine works by not letting seeds mature. I don't think it kills existing plants. I may be wrong.
With roundup, the weeds eventually grow there, since the native vegatation is killed. I want to keep the vegetation down where I put in the native plants. I would appreciate any recommendations. Picture attached.
Part of the area is wet sometimes, depending on the year.
