Wildflower seed experiment update

For anyone following me for a while you will know that I sowed some wildflower seeds in a trough at the beginning of the season (blog can be found here: https://wendyswonderlandgarden.wordpress.com/2020/04/26/wildflower-seed-experiment/ ) and I wanted to give you an update. I haven’t seen any bees on them but they are growing well and are pretty. Here are the pictures

Wildflower seed experiment

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.
