Seed Sources for New England Meadows

Where can you buy wildflower seeds?


People often ask where to buy seed mixes for planting wildflower meadows and pollinator habitat.  Listed below are some wildflower seed companies that specialize in meadow mixes and pollinator mixes and carry mixes suitable for northern New England. Most also sell seed packets of individual species.                                                                 

Prairie Nursery               Wisconsin  

Prairie Moon Nursery     Minnesota   

Ernst Seed                     Pennsylvania

Vermont Wildflower Seed                 


There are not currently many sources of seed from New England ecotypes and availability is very limited. A few places to check if obtaining local ecotypes is your objective:

Grow Native Massachusetts              

Wild Seed Project (Maine)                 

New England Wetland Plants            

Native Plant Trust    

Ask your supplier for the source or seed lot origin if that is important to you.
