Wildflower planting

Asked October 21, 2020, 7:06 PM EDT

I am wanting to plant a wildflower meadow to attract pollinators and am going to start with blue flax and black eyed susans in an old cattle pasture. Is it best to plant these in the fall or spring

Hello, here are some links I found that should help you determine the timing for planting Blue Flax and Black-eyed Susan in your area.

I like the recommendations from these links as their winters are similar to ours, if not colder.
