How to create a wildflower meadow

 

  1. Wildflowers do not like competition – remove any plants growing in your planned seedbed such as weeds, nettles, docks and couch grass. Be aware weed killer is not advisable in areas of wildlife.
  1. Dig the soil over and firm it down before raking to create a level seed bed.
  2. Sow the wildflower seed either by hand or with a seed spreader. We recommend sowing the wildflower seed at 5g per 1 square meter of soil.
  3. Rake the wildflower seed into the soil and moisten the ground well.
  4. Protect the newly seeded area from birds, cats and the like with a visual deterrent such as hanging C. Ds, creating noise for example using wind chimes or tightly fitting net above the seedbeds until the plants have established.
  5. Ensure the soil is kept moist during hot, dry periods for the best germination.
