When reviewing wildflower mixes recently, LRISS found that one company who offered 10 different mixes, 8 of them had a known invasive plant: Batchelor Buttons.
An example of one of the mixes is shown here.
Avoid invasives when choosing seeds by:
- Learn to identify invasive plants. Check out www.LRISS.ca.
- Read the contents of all seed mixes to avoid ones with invasive species.
- Ask for Certificate of Seed Analysis for seed mixes especially bulk and lawn mixes. It will show what % and types of invasives.
- Support local seed events like Seedy Sunday. It is invasive-free. March 8.
