I read somewhere that old cemeteries make excellent places to find rare wildflowers. Might be good places to harvest rare seeds for dispersal elsewhere.
I came across something to keep in mind for my upcoming habitat restoration project on the excellent plosone.org: “The identification of plant species that can support a high number of animal species, including important ecosystem service providers, is becoming increasingly important for restoration and conservation applications.” Valerie E.

I’m going to finally make my long-awaited (by me, anyway!) seedballs this weekend. The magic formula, as plagiarized from numerous sources and with one novel ingredient of my own: red clay powder, organic worm castings, chili powder, water, wildflower seeds both annual and perennial, and a mycorrhizal seed mix which the seeds will be treated with prior to their inclusion in the seedballs. Fingers crossed!
