Shipping fee is included (within the contiguous US). To facilitate more even distribution of your native seed mix over your planting site, we encourage stirring a filler material in a container with your seeds prior to hand-sowing to bulk up the overall volume. This "spaces out" the seed in your handfuls from the mixture, enhancing wider distribution as you broadcast.  Material that can serve as a seed mix filler can be sand, sawdust, or potting soil.  If a filler material is not readily available to you, we offer environmentally-friendly Par Boiled Rice Hulls at these approximate quantities:
5 gallons = for a 500 sq ft seed mix
7 gallons = 1000 sq ft seed mix
14 gallons = 1/8 acre seed mix

2 Questions asked on Seed Mix Filler - Rice Hulls






Q Teri • January 8 what is the recommended ratio of rice hulls to seed?
A Prairie Moon • January 9 We recommend about 1/2 to 1 bushel of filler for every 1000 sq ft seed mix. Unsure what measurements are in a bushel? Me too! :) 1 bushel = approx 8 gallons. Our 1000 sq foot seed mixes come in a bag about the size of a paper lunch sack, so you are bulking up that native seed quite a bit by adding a 5 gallon bucket, or more of filler before hand sowing!
Q Becky • May 24 If I'm using sand, sawdust, or potting soil as filler, how much do I need for your Tallgrass exposed clay subsoil 500 sq foot mix?
A Prairie Moon • May 26 Hi Becky. I think roughly a 5-gallon bucket of sand or sawdust would do the trick. We say to use one-half to one bushel of filler per 1000 square feet. A bushel equals eight gallons or 1.24 cubic feet, so you need about 4 gallons.
