Spring vs. dormant prairie seeding?
Wondering if anyone has had success with prairie seed plantings this time of year? Looking at short mixes from Prairie Moon (MN) & Prairie Nursery (WI) to seed a septic mound & adjacent area 3,000 sq ft. I hit the area with roundup last fall, and twice this spring. The area looks to be in pretty good shape. I keep hearing that I should keep after the weeds all year, maybe plant a temporary cover crop, and dormant seed late fall. Not thrilled about looking at a dead zone all summer if I wait for fall. Just wondered if anyone has experience planting spring vs. fall. Thank you!
