When to Consult About Your Large Planting Project

When planning a large seed purchase for public land projects or reclamation sites, there are a handful of factors to consider. Seed species, availability, time frames, budgets, and environmental conditions should all be a part of your seed planning process. To ensure your project stays on track and you get your intended results, consulting an expert from the start should be a significant part of your planning process. 

In addition to providing the highest quality seed products on the market for the last 65+ years, our Cultivation Experts provide consulting services to offer support and troubleshoot issues on your cultivation journey!

Seed Quantity

How much seed do you need for your restoration or public land project? The amount of seed you order depends on the acreage and desired plant density of your land. See this video from our Cultivation Expert Mark Peabody to learn more about calculating the planting rate based on purity, germination, and healthy plant population. Our team is here to answer any questions about this process!

Promote Diversity

Planting native plants improves land and air quality while developing and maintaining genetic diversity on your land. Native plants can support wildlife, pollinators, and ecosystems to improve your land and surrounding areas. These plants will thrive in their native regions and require less maintenance than other seeds and plants. Curious about which plants are native to your area? Ask about this during your one-on-one with us
