Seeds require a certain temperature in order to germinate. Each plant has a specific optimum and a range within which germination will occur. The closer the temperature is to optimum the quicker germination will occur. Most seeds germinate when the soil temperature is between 68 and 86 degrees F. Once germination occurs, the optimum growing temperature for the seedling is about 10 degrees F cooler than the optimum germination temperature.
Perennials. They need at least one year to exhibit growth and should bloom in their 2nd year. Plant in Spring after last Frost or Fall after first frost so your seeds don't germinate and freeze. They will germinate in the Spring!
Perennials will reward you with years and years of color. Annuals provide you with quick (60-90 days) blooms throughout Spring, Summer and Fall!
Not every species in your mixture will grow. These mixes are designed to work with Zones 2-10 and seeds are carefully selected so many of them will work in those areas.
FALL GARDENING TIPS
Should you plant flower seeds in the fall?
Fall is the perfect time to plant wildflowers. You'll follow Mother Nature's cycle - flowers naturally drop their seeds in the fall, and they overwinter, then germinate and bloom in spring. Fall planting is an especially good time to plant in areas where you want to conserve water.
