Call Native American Seed or go to their website seedsource.com. They are located in Kimble county and have several different seed blends to use. Ask for Z. She is very knowledgeable, but I am sure most of them there are.

Agree on Native American Seed. Gonna be tough to get germination without supplemental water or spending a pretty penny planting it with preferred machinery. Good product but hurts the pocket when planting on the landscape scale.

I would just plant a few more rocks and call it zero-scaping. :-)

If you get a couple rains on it, some seed should start popping up and you may not really need to reseed.
