We've been waiting on this day for what feels like an eternity. It is really unnerving to have thousands of dollars of seeds in your freezer for months on end. When we pulled them out, they were dry, with no sign of damage, so I was happy. As an extra bonus a friend gave us a bunch of starts to put in from seeds collected from a nearby prairie - Thanks, Julia!
We loaded the truck with all the seeds, and spread over the entire 16 acre wetland. Some of the seeds (Silphium perfoliatum and Asclepias incarnata) were too big for the spreader, so we put them in by hand - walking and letting the wind take them.
