HOW TO PLANT WILDFLOWER SEEDS
When To Plant
For Spring planting, it is best to plant within a month after the final frost of the winter season.For Fall planting, plant the seeds after the first frost to eliminate any chance of germination. Planting in the Fall gives you a jump start on Spring blooms.
Where To Plant
Though many wildflowers do tolerate some shade, and a few actually thrive in it, the vast majority prefer a sunny environment. Wildflowers will generally grow in all but the most difficult conditions.
How To Plant
Clear the area and soften the soil as best you can before planting your seeds. For a smaller area, you can hand-broadcast the seeds. For larger areas, we recommend a seed spreader to create a better dispersion of the seeds. After the seeds have been sown, lightly compress the seeds into the soil about 1/4" to protect from birds and wind. Keep the soil moist until germination begins.
