Again this year the TWRA has free wildflower seed packets available to benefit monarch butterflies. The seed mix includes milkweed, coreopsis, coneflower, and some other host and nectar plants. The packet is good for about 15 sq. ft. of open space or garden. Do not delay: Planting time is now and supplies are limited.
For your free seeds email TWRA.Monarchs@tn.gov and leave your physical mailing address. For more seeds and more information on the plight of monarchs, go to www.SaveOurMonarchs.org or contact Ward Johnson at 952-829-0600.
