Four months ago Cally Hale & Aleta Labak & I had a discussion on cover crops in this NABUR Agriculture discussion group. Last Friday, I had the opportunity to pick up 4 pounds of Phacelia seed at Southwest Seed in Dolores, CO.
Phacelia is a fantastic pollinator attractor!
I am actively looking to distribute the phacelia seed to those interested in seeding the phacelia seed within the next week or so. Within 2 months, the phacelia will be flowering!
In return for providing the phacelia seed at no cost, I am requesting that the phacelia grower provide me with photos & written observations of the phacelia plants as they develop to maturity.
If you are interested in seeding phacelia, please contact me prior to the 4th of July by texting to: 605.890.2600 or emailing me at: CatskillOwl2021@icloud.com
Please be ready to let me know the amount of phacrlia seed that You are interested in planting:
Phacelia Seeding rate:
4 oz / 1,000 sq. ft. / 0.11 kg / 92.9 sq.meters
Phacelia Seeding depth:
1/4 in > 1/2 in depth / 6.35 millimeters / 12.7 millimeters
Looking forward to hearing from You before the Fourth of July.
