How to Grow Your Wild Plant Seeds!
This page was created to assist our customers in the planting process of the wild edible seeds found on our Shop > Seeds page.
Each seed listing has a "type number" that categorizes the seeds into different methods of planting. Find the type number of the seeds you are looking to purchase in the product description then match it with the number listed on this page. Here you will find how to best grow your edible wild plants from seed!
Seed Type #1
This plant type spreads by wind and animal ingestion in the wild, lightly covered on the grounds surface. These seed types are annuals. They should be planted in the spring time and are the easiest plant types to grow by seed. For the best results, simply clear the desired area to grow your wild plants of any major rocks, sticks, or any other major obstruction. Spread seeds roughly 5 inches apart and cover lightly with a thin layer of soil - no less than 1/8'' and no more than 1/2''. Sprinkle once with a light dose of water after planting seeds, and just sit back and let nature do what it does best!
Seed Type #2
This plant type is an aquatic plant, and spreads by wind and animal ingestion in the wild. These seed types are annuals. They should be planted in late winter or early spring but can be started indoors during winter.. For the best results, fill small cardboard boxes or other porous containers with sand and water it well. Cardboard egg containers work well for starting cattail seeds. Place the seeds on top of the sand in the containers. Do not bury the seeds, just push them gently into the surface. Put your small cardboard containers inside of a larger container that does not have any holes in it. Fill the bottom container with approximately 1/2-inch of water. Wait 1 month for the seeds to sprout. Keep the sand wet the entire time. After the seeds sprout, place the container in a sunny area until the seedlings grow to 2-inches tall. Transplant the seedlings into larger pots that are filled with soil. Allow them to grow in the pots until the plants reach a height of 1 foot. Plant your wild edible plants in a shaded wet area. They grow well in swamps and can grow in any stagnant water up to 6-inches deep. Instructions by: Lindy
