    Since there isn't room for another tree or bush on my property, and it finally rained here, I put out a lot of wildflower seed on my property, areas formerly grass were cleared for it.

    Last year I put out $50 worth of wildflower seed in prospective outyard and adjacent wild property but with no spring rains nothing germinated. This year I spent less and put seed where I could keep it watered.

    I also put inoculated dutch clover seed in my front yard where I can keep it watered and it won't be overrun by my dogs.

    What ya planting?

    I got some of most everything to go, but some seeds were a total flop. I did get some milkweeds and larkspur and poppies, i totally failed on wallflowers in 3 different locations, my horse mint is up, my crimson clover is about 3 inches tall. With family stuff all winter things don't always get done on time.
