A natural glue made from plant material, binder holds seeds and mulch in place; especially helpful in windblown or sloped areas. Broadcast seed, mulch and binder together, or sprinkle binder on top of the mulch that is covering the seed, then water to make the binder gluey. Also holds moisture and will help give good resuilts on flat areas. Coverage rate: 2 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. for flat areas, more according to the steepness of slope or exposure to wind.
