for Medium-Wet to Medium-Dry Soils & Full to Partial Sun
Winner of the 2013 Direct Gardening Association Green Thumb Award for outstanding new product. This top-selling mix includes "pretty-darn-quick"-to-establish prairie flowers and grasses to provide more immediate color and a naturalized look.  For full-sun to partial-shade sites with medium soils. The maximum height of any single grass or flower included here is no more than 4-5 feet.
 
If planted in the fall or early spring, most of the plants in the "PDQ" mix will establish in the first year. Some blooms can be expected in year one but this should not stop you from mowing that season. Clipping or cutting will not harm the plants and blooms should be profuse in the second and third years. more info...

Customer praise for PDQ:
“When I converted our hayfield into a prairie scape, I planted the PDQ mix and was rewarded with beautiful flowers, by the 2nd year. Gaining confidence since then, I’ve become even more creative by adding other seed mixes and enhancements. PDQ contains an excellent mix for establishing a hardy and colorful prairie garden.” - Laura S., La Crosse, WI
 
“The PDQ seed mix worked great and grows beautifully in the 2-3 year time-frame. I planted it in December 2012 and mowed several times during the 2013 summer. Last summer the flowers were spectacular, especially the Black-eyed Susan, Hyssop and Beardtongue.” - Sue R., Rochester, MN
