Will I see all my seeds germinate at once?
No, in most cases there is a staggered germination for native wildflower blends. Native wildflowers are very diverse and so too are their germination requirements and habits. Some are easy and germinate in a big flush in spring or fall, while others need a winter (or two!) to break their seed dormancy. Some are slow and irregular, meaning they germinate a little here, a little there and some more a while later. Some need cool temperatures while others need warm temperatures to germinate; a few need warm temperatures after a cool spell. There are a lot of individual expressions going on. This is why we recommend seeding wildflower blends in early fall, to ensure that the array of requirements are met.
