Mixes are prepared to order and based on any timelines you can provide. Note that the ideal time for seeding is in late fall, which is also ideal for more species diversity after fall seed harvesting.

For site-specific requests, please reach out or include them in your order notes. Our mixes offer some species flexibility based on availability.

For restorations needing over 50 kg, we suggest to pre-order well in advance. You can reach out our team at sales@stwilliamsnursery.com to reserve your seed.
