Sowing Wildflower Seeds

Wild flowers are a very important part of the countryside as they provide a rich, colourful and diverse ecological habitat for many insects and wildlife. They also offer great aesthetic value to enhance the natural beauty of the British countryside, motorway networks, parkland and gardens.

Over the past 50 years, the number of traditional wild flower meadows has sadly declined which has resulted in a noted decrease of British Insects. For pollination to take place, we need ideal flowers to attract those all-important bees, so they can ensure the plants become fertilised and reproduce.

Best Wildflower Seed Mix in The UK

Idealseed mixtures contain some of the recommended plants on the Royal Horticultural Society’s list of plants which are ‘Perfect Pollinators’.

The wildflower seeds in your mixture will have originated from a wild flower production field, harvested by qualified growers. This seed will have been multiplied in single species plots from seed sourced in the wild. From seeding to harvesting it can take two growing seasons before a seed crop is produced. Once harvested, the seed is cleaned to remove the inert matter and provide high purity seed.

One method that is similar to the previous one is planting wild flowers from bulbs. This method is actually common as there have been lots of farmers who claims this is a tried and tested method.

An alternative to that would be planting from plug plants as that is quicker. It is common to want this thing over with as soon as possible. After all, it is a pretty strenuous activity. In fact, planting seeds is like a form of exercise. You are definitely going to sweat a lot especially if you decide to do it on a sunny day. It won’t make sense to do it on a rainy day anyway.

Another method is using grass and wild flowers mixtures. There are a lot of manufacturers that sell these mixtures on the Internet. You just need to pick a good one as you won’t end up with a terrible product.
Last but not the least, you can get supplies from a seed to create a border. The border should not be too big anyway.

All things take lots of hard work and perseverance to accomplish and that includes planting a wildflower seed.

The soil fertility is one of the things you should keep your eye on. It should be relatively low. If it is high, then wildflower is not suited for it. There are many subsoils that it is best suited but it is best sown on clean poor subsoil. It is a different story when the ground is found to be fertile. You may need to go for other options like highly acclaimed mixtures.

Planting grass is equally as important as planting the seed. Thus, better select good-looking grass so you will have a nice and solid background. If the grass does not look good then the wildflower won’t look picture perfect. Yes, it won’t be worth to post pictures of it on Instagram.
