Plenty of sun, try toavoid dense shady areas. Choose a sandy-loam soil if possible. Naturalrock formations or rough areas should be retained to prevent erosion andprovide a more natural setting. Loosen the soil in the seeding areawith a hoe - if the area is large use a disc or harrow. SEEDING TIME is most important! Seed must be sown as early aspossible in the spring as soon as the snow disappears. Good Friday (lateMarch or early April) would be a good time to begin sowing. Seed sownafter May 15th will adversely effect the survival of some of the hardyperennials resulting in a poor mixture next spring. Late fall (Sept.15th - Oct. 15th) sowings are also possible, but not as effective asearly spring. Scatter or broadcast the seed (just like you would lawnseed) as thinly as possible on top of the lose soil surface. You maywish to mix the seed with fine sand to assure even distribution. Rakethe seeds lightly into the soil surface. Do not cover the seeds withsoil! If your hose will reach, sprinkle the seeded areas gently every 2or 3 days until they germinate, or wait for seasonal rains to do thework for you.
