No matter if you have a large space that isn’t being used or just a tiny patch in your backyard the best solution to create an almost maintenance-free patch of stunning shades is to plant wild flower seeds. Today there are seeds delivered to you from across the globe. Some varieties will not thrive in your environment, therefore you must pay attention to the specific requirements of each wildflower mix. But, you can still create the appearance of a carpet without much effort.
When you are deciding on wildflower seeds, the most important thing to think about is the amount of sun it will get. Then pick the flower accordingly. Sun-loving flowers will not work well with trees and shade-loving wildflowers will not thrive in the hot desert sun.
The most important decision you’ll have to be made is what kind of design, which one if any, do you want to provide your garden? Do you need to plant in small areas of color or mix a variety of seed varieties and let nature run its course? There is no definitive answer. You can choose to follow whatever is pleasing your eyes.
It is vitally crucial when you are thinking about the use of wildflower seeds. To allow seedlings to sprout the soil must be cleared of weeds and the surface roots. If you wish to, you can apply pesticides. They kill plants, but they will remain in the soil.
You can move the soil around and then clear it manually in case the area isn’t too large. You can also protect the area by covering it with sheeting of plastic for around two weeks, and let the sun burn the weeds out, and letting the plastic block the top layer of soil from receiving any moisture.
After that, the only thing you need to do is make grooves using a rake and then water this area completely. Mix the seeds of wildflowers with soil, with the dirt being twice as big as the seeds, then plant them. Keep the seeds of wildflowers hydrated until they begin to germinate and form into a stalk. You can now put the watering schedule on and sit back and enjoy watching the plants grow. From now on, water is all wildflowers require.
A carpet of color in your garden or the vacant space in front of your house isn’t that difficult or costly If you’re using wildflower seeds as your main source of inspiration.
