A few weeks ago I sowed a variety of wildflower seeds in trays and today I decided to sow some more. The little shoots of the first lot of seeds I sowed are already starting to poke through the soil and I can’t wait till they grow a bit bigger so I can then plant them in containers by my front steps.
The wildflowers I have sown are: a variety of poppy seed, chamomile, oxeye daisies, foxgloves, red campion, and mullein. (just to name a few)
I have also sown other flowers such as: night stocks, love-in-a-mist and corn flowers
A number of the plants will also be planted around the garden as well as in a wild garden patch I made.
I dug a wild patch last year and it self seeded this year with red campions, alkanet and foxgloves.
It doesn’t matter if you sow wild seed in your garden or a garden container, it wont take long for the bees, hoverflies and other insects to find them and they will enjoy them all summer.
