Growth Habit and Planting Instructions: The species in this mix have various growth habits, ranging from low-growing ground cover to tall, upright plants reaching up to 4 feet in height. To plant, choose a well-drained location with full sun to partial shade. Prepare the soil by removing weeds and loosening the top 2-3 inches. Broadcast the seeds evenly over the prepared soil and lightly press them in, either by walking over the area or using a roller. No need to bury the seeds deeply; a 1/8-inch covering of soil is sufficient for most species. Water the area gently but thoroughly, keeping the soil consistently moist until the seeds germinate. Germination time will vary depending on the species and environmental conditions. Once established, the mix is relatively low-maintenance but will benefit from occasional watering during dry periods and thinning if the plants become too crowded.
