Planting instructions: Seedbed or area to be seeded should be prepared by light cultivation and weed removal. Optimum planting season is November 15 through March 31, just prior to anticipated rain. Broadcast seed evenly over soil surface. Rake the area lightly to incorporate seed into the top 1/4″- 1/2″ of soil. A top dressing of composted organic mulch (not manure) is recommended to help maintain even moisture during the germination period.
Maintenance: Irrigate just enough (between rains) to maintain soil moisture during
germination. After germination until initial flowering, sprinkle the area to a depth of about 2″.
After flowering, little to no supplemental water should be needed.


Beach mix is a blend of fast growing wildflowers especially suited for sandy soils near the coast.  The species are fast growing, typically early bloomers, and the mix has a long flowering season.  It is very drought tolerant near the coast, and capable of handling salty air and night time dews.  Beach Mix is excellent as a supplemental mix around woody coastal plants such as Artemisia, Erioogonum, Encelia, Galvezia, Salvia, Fragaria, Ceanothus, and many more.
