How to grow wildflowers:
Soil/Nutrients: Easy to grow. Average, well-drained soil with minimal fertility.
Water/Light: Wildflowers are very adaptable to different environmental conditions. For best results, grow in full sun to light shade. Providing extra moisture during dry spells is beneficial.
Planting: Prepare a well-worked seed bed. To sow seed, simply broadcast evenly over a seed bed. For large areas, mix seed with sand to help highlight the seeded portion and provide even coverage. Once seeded, press lightly into the soil or lightly rake in just to cover the seed. Firming the soil after seeding will ensure the seed will not be washed away.
Plant care: To ensure a good show of colour each year, resow a small amount of wildflower or mixed annual seed each spring.
