Plan Your Planting. For fast growth and strong, healthy plants, plant when your soil temperature reaches a minimum of 55°F.
When To Plant?
For Spring planting, it is best to plant within a month after the final frost of the winter season. For Fall planting, plant the seeds after the first frost to eliminate any chance of germination. Planting in the Fall gives you a jump start on Spring blooms.
Where To Plant?
Though many wildflowers do tolerate some shade, and a few actually thrive in it, the vast majority prefer a sunny environment. Wildflowers will generally grow in all but the most difficult conditions.
Prepare Your Soil by removing all existing growth and debris. This step is crucial to ensure your wildflowers grow healthily and don’t have to compete for resources.
The Importance of Soil Preparation.
Sow Your Seeds once your area is prepared, scatter your seeds evenly in two sowings and compress them into the soil for good seed-to-soil contact helps to speed up germination and ensures moisture and nutrients make their way to your seeds.
Leave Seeds Uncovered, wildflower seeds need to be exposed to light to germinate. Cover them with straw if your area is prone to strong winds.
Water Your Wildflowers Planting. Water regularly to keep soil moist, not soaking wet, until seedlings are about 4-6 inches tall. Watering your planting is essential for the best results! Since wildflower seeds are not buried beneath wet soil, they have constant exposure to the sun, so they’ll need your help to stay hydrated to germinate.
Watch Growth, sprouts will start appearing in late spring or early summer, and you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the beauty of your wildflowers!
