Wildflower Seed Varieties

Our native wildflowers can be hardy annuals, biennials or perennials and their basic requirements are much the same. Wildflowers are important in supporting our native insects and animals. Not only do they encourage high biodiversity, they also make a pretty and colourful addition to the garden. The most attractive way to grow wildflowers is by planting a meadow, although they can be grouped formally in beds and borders to great effect. Annual wildflowers can be watered while they establish, to encourage good growth. Perennial wildflowers should be left to grow naturally without any additional water or fertiliser.

How to Sow and Grow Wildflowers
Sow outdoors, March-May and August-October, where they are to flower, 0.5cm (¼in) deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Thin seedlings as necessary to allow development. Water well until plants are established. For a continuous display of annuals, make sowings at two to three-week intervals. Sowings made in curves, rather than straight lines, often create a more pleasing effect. Late summer and autumn sowings will flower the following year, often earlier than spring sowings.
