NCPRD Native Seed Packets

NCPRD seed packets contain seeds from plants that are native to Oregon and the Northwest, all locally sourced from Heritage Seedlings and Liners. Native plants provide an important food source and vital habitat for many species of wildlife that live in Oregon, including many species of birds and bees.  Plants that are considered native to the area are better adapted to the local environment and conditions and help protect biodiversity. Learn more about NCPRD’s Natural Resources Program.

Planting instructions: Mix seed with slightly moistened sand, vermiculite, or sawdust. Broadcast seed by hand onto weed-free mulch or prepared seed bed. Press into soil and cover with a light dusting of sifted soil. Seeds need cool and moist conditions – sow in the fall for best results.

All seed commercially grown in Oregon from wild-collected Willamette Valley seed.
