Wildflower Seed Scattering

On Thursday, December 9, 2021 several of us met in the area we hope will become our new wildflower meadow to scatter many different native seed varieties donated by Greenwich Land Trust and the Riverside Garden Club. We did not anticipate all of the leaves, so before we could scatter the seeds we spent much time raking. We are hoping that some of these seeds come up in the spring and will be strong enough to compete with the Mugwort. Volunteers attempted to weed out the Mugwort this fall but it is very aggressive. In the early spring, after a mowing, we will also plant seedlings and donated plugs, and  hope for success from some of them. This sunny area was selected for the large concentration of already established Milkweed and Goldenrod.
