Cardno has more than 225 seed species in production and more than 500 individual genotype-identified seed lots. To simplify the process and economize on costs, Cardno has developed several customized seed mixes for specific habitats. For any of these mixes, you can download the species list as either an Excel spreadsheet or as a pdf. These seed mixes are made to order, so please allow approximately 1 week for us to process your order.
In the spirit of continuous improvement, we have redesigned our native seed mixes for 2015 to provide greater diversity, increased coverage, and key pollinator food sources. In most mixes, we have increased the quantities of milkweed species to help offset the decline in Monarch butterfly breeding habitat. Aster and goldenrod species were also added to several mixes to provide additional late-season food sources.
