MNL Pollinator Mix – Dry to Mesic

Our most diverse and most popular pollinator mix

Dry-mesic version of our popular Pollinator Mix approved by the Xerces Society for pollinator habitat enhancement and restoration. Our most diverse mix, with over 25 species of wildflowers including 3 or more in each bloom season:  spring, summer, fall. 

Seed mixes in our 500, 1,000, 5,000, and 1/4 acre package sizes come with native grasses, wildflowers, cover crop, and a filler (for easier spreading) all pre-mixed. Orders in 1/2 acre or 1 acre+ sizes come with grasses, wildflowers, and cover crop bagged separately for drill seeding or broadcast seeding.

Species of cover crop seed will depend on the time of year the product is ordered – if you order ahead and have a delayed planting time in mind, please indicate planting season (spring, summer, fall, or winter) in a note at check out.
