Hi All,
I have another question for y'all.

I have a corner, up below the pond.An acre or so.
It's kinda brushy, and full of Multiflora rose.
I want to mow it all over & clean it up some.

Then, I want to sow something more worth while, that maybe the deer & turkeys might hide in or use.
Anybody here ever sow any of the Native Grasses?
Big bluestem, Indian Grass, or Switchgrass?

They all grow about 5 to 7 ft. tall.
I could mow it a couple times a year, or not.
Native grasses are s'posed to be good for ecology,
and for pasture too.
Seed is kinda pricey though. Seems like it'd be a good use for what is now a worthless spot??
I got another spot, down along the road I want to cut(Got multiflora rose, everywhere).
I'm gonna sow it with shorter native grasses, little bluestem, side oats, junegrass, & such, after it's cleaned up.
Anyone have any info on this..........
Thanks, 'Til later............
Old John

last spring about this time, my sister's church group gathered everybody's old seeds and just declared an area behind the church as "God's garden". The idea was that kids or poor people or whoever would find some good there. I'll tell ya - it was kinda like noah putting out the word the ark was ready! I mean people came to plant, water, tend and walk and kids sang and picked radishes and peas and pets chased around and critters nibbled and bounced and flitted all over - turns out God's garden was a regular paradise :)
I tell you this because sounds like you have a spot like that - you know what the deer liked best? Oh they grazed down the corn before it eared out, that was okay, but at harvest time they pulled every pumpkin apart and licked them clean. So why not just let the word out, gather and use old seeds and see what happens? :)

I have several patches of native grasses around the place. Mostly switchgrass, big and little bluestem and sideoats gramma. Real pretty stuff and the birds do like it. It's getting kind of overun with cool season grasses and needs to be burned off. Some of the places around here that have put in native grasses for the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) have pheasants, quail and praire chickens moving back in. Put in some wildflowers too if you can. Seeds are really expensive. Don't mow the multiflora. It loves to be pruned. As much as I try to avoid the stuff, chemical control is about the only way to go. Especially if you want to do it in one season.
