— It’s an easy recipe to make at home — just pop in some fresh flowers and sprinkle some salt on top.
But when it comes to buying wild flowers in Colorado, there’s a bit of a learning curve.
A handful of local gardeners have been taking their skills to the next level, learning how to grow wildflowers from seed and harvesting them for a variety of different purposes.
In an effort to bring more of Colorado’s wildflowing resources into the home, the Colorado Department of Agriculture is opening up its seed bank to public seed-gathering.
The program is being dubbed the Wildflower Seed Bank.
It’s the first of its kind in the United States.
Wildflowers are one of the most beautiful plants that you can grow, and the vast majority of them are native to California, Oregon and Washington.
They are so popular with gardeners and pet owners that they are now becoming a popular gardening tool for the outdoor enthusiasts and outdoorsmen.
They grow so well, in fact, that Colorado has been called the state with the highest wildflower population in the country.
“Wildflowing is an incredibly unique and beautiful part of our landscape,” said Mark Smith, the director of the Colorado State University Extension’s Wildflower Science and Conservation Center.
“It’s really one of nature’s most spectacular plants.”
Smith said that as of right now, the state has more than 60,000 wildflower seedlings.
With this new program, farmers in the state are able to purchase seeds from the Department of Land and Natural Resources and receive the seeds from one of three seed banks in Colorado: the Colorado Wildflower Cooperative, the Wildflowers of the Rockies and the Rocky Mountain Wildflower Center.
The Wildflower Seed Bank is open Monday through Friday, from noon to 6 p.m.
The seeds are free and open to the public.
The SeedBank program is the latest initiative in a broader effort by Colorado officials to help make wildflows a more accessible and accessible place to grow plants.
A number of projects have already been started with the WildFLOWERS program.
The Rocky Mountain Center for the Protection of Wildflows is developing a program to help farmers in northern Colorado start seedlings and grow their own wildflorn.
There’s also a new initiative called the Colorado Growers Seed Bank, which is designed to provide seed-supply to Colorado farmers.
The program, launched in June, provides seed and other materials to farmers for the first time.
This is the first year the WildFOWLS program has opened up to the general public.
This new initiative, however, does not have a seed supply, according to Dan Clements, the center’s chief technology officer.
Smith said he hopes the Wild Flower Seed Bank program will open up seed supplies and allow farmers to continue growing their own seeds, even though it does not include a seed bank.
The center will begin offering seed kits in the coming weeks, he said.
It’s not the first initiative in Colorado to bring seeds from seeds from outside the state.
A pilot program began this year, offering seed supply to Colorado farm cooperatives, the Rocky Mountaineer newspaper reported.
