Milkweed and native wildflower Restoration
I am doing a restoration project. I will plant milkweed(common and butterfly weed) from plugs and wildflowers from seeds(https://www.americanmeadows.com/wildflower-seeds/northeast/northeast-pollinator-wildflower-seed-mix). This will be on an area that is currently a lawn and a sparsely wooded area. My current plan is to till it, spread the seeds, step the seeds into the soil, then water and care for them. I would like to plant early May. What would be the best way to plant, tank care of the plants, and make sure they grow best?
