MNL Woodland Mix

From: $75.00

A mix designed for wooded areas with partial to full shade

Includes a variety of native grass, sedge, and wildflower species suited for moderate to dense shade.

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.
