Native wildflower Seed for some native prairie wild flowers need 3 to 12 weeks exposure to cool, moist conditions before the wild flower seed will germinate.  This may be achieved by broadcasting/planting the wildflower seeds on a wildflower bed or prairie wildflower field in the winter and letting nature do its job or pre-treating the wildflower seeds in a refrigerator for the recommended time before spring planting. 
     Some native wildflower seeds have a hard seed coat making germination slow or difficult.  These seeds will germinate much easier when scarified before planting.  Scarify seeds by rubbing between 2 sheets of coarse sandpaper to scratch the seeds hard outer layer and let water penetrate.
