The Base Restoration Seed Mix consists of wildflowers and grasses designed for rapid establishment in open disturbed soils.  The mix  tolerates poor, dry-medium moisture soils in full-part sun, and is made up of tough, hardy species that grow well from seed.  The mix is suitable for soil stabilization projects, roadside edges, slopes, and waste spaces; and will prevent erosion once established.

Every Wildtype Seed Mix is made with 100% locally sourced native seed.  All bulk seed is derived from true Ontario genotype specimens, scaled up on our farm and processed in-house.
