Prairie grasses are mostly perennials, which means that they will return year after year to grace your landscape. Many of these native prairie grass seeds are also warm season grasses that really get going in the summer months.

Moist stratifying forb seed, (Prairie Moon Germination Code C) before spring planting will improve germination during the first year, but we recommend it only if the site can be irrigated. If seed is sown untreated in the spring, some species will not germinate until the following spring after wintering over.Since one person can seed about one acre in a day, hand-broad casting is practical only for areas of one or two acres or smaller, unless a large planting crew is available. Broadcast-seeding a prairie is much like planting lawn seed. Hand-cranked cyclone seeders will not work well with native seed mixes, since the larger seeds tend to plug the device while the smaller seeds flow too quickly. (Source: www.prairiemoon.com)
