My California Wildflower meadow
In mid winter I cut out some grass near my front yard hedge and spread some wildflower seeds. I experimented with three mixes to see which one did the best. The three mixes were a California mix, Butterfly mix and a hummingbird mix. Out of the three the California mix is doing the best, so I will collect the seeds and spread it into the other two sections.
This time around I did not spread any grass seed but I will do that next time. When should I spread the grass seed. Do I mix it with the wildflower seeds or wait until the wildflowers have grown a few inches and then spread the grass seed to fill in gaps.
I have three grasses in mind. The three are, Purple Needle Grass, California Fescue and Idaho Fescue. Purple needle grass is my first choice. Out of the three would this be the best choice for a wildflower mix.
