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 naturalization.
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.
