Do not forget to also add wildflower-type perennial bulbs (Scilla, Allium, Erythronium, Camas, Crocus, etc..) for instant gratification next spring and for naturalizing to provide color for years to come.

Villager Seed Packet Planting Instructions:
Prepare the soil for best results. At least, rake in some Gromulch or Topper. Prior to broadcasting, mix your seed with Topper and a little G&B or Biosol fertilizer for more even distribution, better soil contact and vigorous root growth. Mulch with a very light layer of pine needle straw to shade the seed, slow drying winds and break-up rain drops. Softball-sized rocks placed randomly over the mulch will concentrate and hold moisture and heat and will speed growth. Supplement natural rain & snow with irrigation as frequently as possible. Don’t let the seeds dry out.
