When is the best time to sow wild flower seeds?

You should sow an annual wild flower mixture anytime between September and the end of May to have a good long flowering season during the summer. If you particularly like Corn Marigold, which is included in my Annual wild flower mix  then sow the annual seeds from late February onwards as Corn Marigold does not cope so well with the months of cold winter weather as does the other species. The later you sow annual wild flowers after the end of May, the later in the summer they will begin flowering and if we have a long dry summer you risk getting poor weedy looking plants as a result.

You can sow all my other wild flower mixtures (which are perennial ones) anytime.  The grasses I choose to include in my perennial mixtures are less competitive and at a lower than average ratio to the wild flowers to create a graceful appearance and reduce the competition for the wild flowers helping them to flourish. Take a look at my other FAQ’s to guide you more.
