Would this work? (Wildflower propogation ?)
I have 5 small acres. Half is wooded (cove forest in Appalachians) and the rest is a sort of meadow area on a slope w/LOTS and LOTS of boulders jutting out...there are thistles, golden rods, dog bane, lots of invasives around the edges of the meadow and the wood. I have a bunch of asclepias seeds and some other wildflowers and I want to just scatter them in the weedy area. I am sure germination rates would not be as high as it would if I propogated these in controlled conditions but would I get any rate of germination at all if I just let nature take its course? Has anyone scattered seeds around in this manner w/out properly preparing a seed bed and had success? Even a little success?
