Jefferson County Colorado

Expert Response

Hello, Robert,

Thanks for contacting Douglas County Master Gardeners program through the Extension Foundation.

CSU Extension has an informative fact sheet to guide you in planting a wildflower garden/yard. I’ve included the link below.

Wildflowers in Colorado – 7.233
https://extension.colostate.edu/topic-areas/yard-garden/wildflowers-in-colorado-7-233/

It will tell you that the best time to seed is in late summer or fall, but the fact sheet discusses how to get your site prepared beforehand.

I see you live in Jefferson County and the Conservation District there will help you get started with seeds which are appropriate to your area. Please check the link out below.
