The native plants in the Deer Resistant Short Prairie seed mix are chosen specifically for their lack of palatability to deer. If deer are hungry enough they will eat almost anything, but the plants in this mix are among the least likely to be browsed. For well-drained loam, sandy loam and clay loam soils, this seed mix contains at least 12 wildflowers and 2 or more grasses.

Establishment Notes

Important. Native seed mixes take three years to fully mature.  In the first year, seedlings will expend their energy developing roots, and the plants may grow only an inch or two. During the first two years your site will require mowing to control weed growth. After two or three season the natives will begin to reign. The process requires patience, but even more important is to discourage the growth of weeds during the establishment – the first three to four years.  Read our Seed Mix Establishment Guide to learn more about growing a prairie from seed.

Pure Live Seed Notes

All seed is Pure Live Seed (PLS). One PLS pound is defined as the weight of seed required to equal one pound of 100% pure, germinable seed. This is calculated based upon each seed lot's purity and germination tests. We track the ecotype origin of our seed inventory and provide this information at customer request.
