    Roundstone is the real deal.

    Are your local places sold out?

    I have 35 acres of nwsg in Willisburg area and another 3 acres of wild flowers and nwsg in Bullitt. Just my opinion, but I've been doing this for 15 years.
    • I don't recommend Indiangrass or Maximillian sunflowers.
    • I haven't had any luck with little bluestem. (maybe soil type)
    • Switchgrass is awesome.
    • Partridge pea is awesome.
    • If you wont burn, don't waste your time.
    • If you cant stand it looking like crap for 3 years dont do it. Some wilidflowers and forbs take 5 years
    • Dont worry about using Plateau.
    • Great Plains nwsg drill works great.
    I have knowledge about what not to do

    Check out rackmaxx products. Great guy.

    Really good seed if you are near Metcalfe County. I used the corn and bean last year. This year the clover mix..

    RackMaxx Deer feed is amazing. Deer would step over regular corn on cob and feeders to get to it when I tested it.

    Clover Mix 2021 May - Knee High - Should last 5 years

    This is a different mix that my dad is using in his fields.

    I put in 10 acres last year and used Roundstone also. Great to work with, to early to tell on how successful it will be

    Seems to be some weeds, had a lot of Johnson grass last fall. I was told it will be year 3 before I can really tell.

    Roundstone say that? I’ve heard that thrown around a lot but I’m not buying it.lol

    I haven’t seen Johnson grass take care of itself….but, it still serves a purpose I guess.

    No, roundstone didn’t say that. I was told that by the biologist, NRCS agent, and multiple people who have a successful stand. I did see some of the wildflowers that were part of the mix I planted.

    That’s good! I’d say you’ll have a great plot before long.
