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.



Foothill Mix epitomizes one of our most iconic landscapes, the chaparral/cismontane regions of southern California.  You can picture the oak woodlands, the clearings in the shrub lands, the spring bloom around such dependable landscape plants as Sugar Bush, Manzanita, Wild Lilac, Scrub Oak, Mountain Mahogany, Flannel Bush, Lemonade Berry, Salvia, Yucca, and Buckwheat.  This blend will compliment any native landscape with a truly “wild” look.  Here you have tremendous diversity with 17 species, a long and varied bloom season, and tenacity to reseed and come back year after year.
