After many hours doing some research have found frost seeding works as well as notill dill seeding,how ever for any of the seeding to work well it is recommended that the area to be seeded be cut to around 2 inches in the fall,by mowing in the fall it gives the new seed a chance to germinate and not be crowed out by old growth.
Broadcaster 12 Volt can be installed on an AtV if you are going to do a large area.I have found a few broadcasters for around $149.00

I would like some input as to the best seed for a spring to fall crop to best serve the Bees I know clover and Alfa are good plants,tree foil is also good I'm looking more toward fields and ditch banks also I would. Like to plant what is native to Vermont.
I'm not sure if wild flowers can be frost seeded as my research has been toward hay fields and pastures .

So please post any ideas you have on this

The idea of planting forage for our bees can be spread to our friends and family ever plant ,will help for healthy Bees.
Thank You
