Wildflowers – Preparation For Planting

Q: I want to plant wildflowers over my septic field next spring. Is it OK to use Roundup now over the area?

A: There’s no problem spraying weed killer now but I wouldn’t wait until next spring to plant wildflower seed. Wildflowers do best when planted in fall so winter conditions prime the seed properly for spring/summer bloom. Get information on how to prepare and maintain wildflower beds at xrl.us/gawildflower.
