Pollinators need diverse pollen and nectar sources, so we are distributing 30,000 free seed packets to help the Adirondacks bloom with hope for our pollinators. The seeds are a mix of annual and perennial wildflowers that are appropriate for the region, including many Adirondack natives. Seeds will be distributed throughout the Park along with a colorful brochure explaining the importance of pollinators for biodiversity and food security.



When to Plant: In the Spring after the danger of frost or in summer up to two months before first fall frost.

How to Plant: Find a sunny location and remove existing plant growth. Scatter seeds evenly, compress into soil. Do not cover. Keep moist until seedlings are 6-8" high. After they are established they prefer minimal care.

Coverage: The free seed packets we are distributing contain enough seeds to cover about 4 square feet. 

If you are looking to plant a larger area, you can order the same seed mix from Vermont Wildflower Farm.
