Bobolink & Meadowlark Seed Mix
To order, call 1 866 640 8733 or email sales@stwilliamsnursery.com

The Bobolink and Meadowlark Seed Mix consists of a mix of grasses, sedges, and wildflowers designed to foster habitat for nesting birds.  This mix contains more cool season grasses that actively grow in the Spring when the birds are nesting to provide cover.  Wildflowers and warm season grasses are also a part of this mix and offer colour and interest after the birds have finished nesting.  This seed mix performs best in full sun, thrives in medium-most, rich soils, and is suitable for field or meadow naturalizations.
