Wildflower seed experiment
by Wendy Syddall
For a while now I have really admired and wanted to grow a bed of wildflowers and by this I do not mean a garden left to its own devices and full of weeds and sometimes known as a wildflower garden. I mean actually sowing a wildflower mix. I have a large garden but have no empty beds that this could be done in so I’ve emptied a trough which had bulbs in, only 1 actually flowered (I’ve replanted it), sown my seeds and covered with gravel just to keep the seed in place. I wait to see what happens next. Pictures are, seed packet, before and after of the trough and if this doesn’t work I’ve basically most lost the cost of the seed packet £3 and some time and I’ll try something else in there next year.
I tried this a few years back off the edge of the property thinking how lovely it would be to look out there and see wildflowers. I got a few bachelor buttons that first year, but that was it. I’ll be hoping you have better success.
