Choose a location with 6-8hrs of direct sun. Remove all vegetation, preferably by hand, as tilling can cause weed seeds to sprout. For even seed distribution, mix seeds with sand before sowing (5:1 sand to seeds). Sow half the seeds 2 weeks before last spring frost, when the ground is still cold. 8 weeks later, sow remaining seeds when all risk of frost has passed. Alternatively, you can sow half the seeds in late autumn, and the other half 6 weeks after the final spring frost. Broadcast by hand over bare, lightly raked soil. After sowing, rake lightly to cover with 3mm (1/8”) soil; covering too deeply will delay germination. Water directly after sowing, and regularly for 4-6 weeks.
Drought tolerant once established. Do not fertilize - reduces blooming. New wildflower gardens are very susceptible to weeds, so weed regularly.
At end of autumn mow garden to height of 10-15cm (4-6”).
Not necessary. Many of the annuals in this mix will self-seed and the biennials and perennials will naturally grow again in subsequent years as per their nature.
