Hunting season is over and its time to start making plans for this upcoming growing season. Providing adequate cover is critical to keep whitetails on your property, especially those older age class bucks we all work so hard to protect. The crew at Nativ Nurseries has put together a killer Bedding Blend that uses 7 varieties of native grasses and wildflowers to create a safe place for deer to lay up. This blend can be planted in abandoned fields, travel corridors, food plot perimeters, or any place you want to create that safe zone where deer can hide out and feel secure. The blend contains Big Bluestem, Indian Grass, Switch Grass, Virginia Wild Rye, Partridge Pea, New England Aster, and Maximillian Sunflower. Establishing an area for cover is not only beneficial to deer but also all types of wildlife. Bedding Blend cover and habitat mix is designed to be browse resistant and comes in ½ acre, 1 acre, and 5 acre sizes.
