The first thing that comes to mind when someone wants to seed Wildflowers is to clear everything on where you will sow it. Yes, that means statues, swings and any other garden decorations that may be on it. Also, it would be best to do it at a season that is right for it. If you do it at the wrong season, you may end up wasting your time. The best months to do it would be either August to October or March to May.

What to do Before Seeding

Just like any other process, preparation is very important. Thus, it would be best to see if there is any other seed that is growing there. If there isn’t any other growing seed on the garden that is good news for you. If there is, you will have to germinate it then eventually take it out.

Another thing to do while preparing for wildflower seeding is to clear everything that is there. You can’t blame yourself if you scattered heavy garden equipment there. If you can’t move them by yourself, enlist the help of somebody else. Besides, it is very important the seed bed looks spotless.

Look around the garden and see if there are any other flower seeds. If there are, it is best to get rid of them immediately. It is going to take a long time to grow Wildflowers so it won’t be wise to grow it with other flowers. Thus, it is best to move the other flowers (if you have any) to another garden or maybe a pot.

You don’t have to worry about burning them as that is another task for another time. The next step would be to carefully scatter the seed mixture throughout the desired area.
