If you have always wanted to start a flower garden but are not quite sure how to go about it, the good news is that you really don’t have to do anything more than just scatter the seeds. Wildflowers don’t care where they end up, so it doesn’t matter if they are in your front lawn or on the side of the road. Even on your kitchen window sill, if you scatter wildflower seeds, you will be doing the same thing as those who scatter vegetable seeds for the same reason – to get more of the plant to grow. So, it doesn’t matter where you put the seeds, what matters is whether or not you get more wildflower than other plants. And once you do, you have planted the best possible garden for yourself.
There are two ways to go about planting wildflower seeds. The first is to use prepared flower seeds, which can be found in many grocery stores and gardening supply stores. And the second way to go is to actually gather the seeds and transfer them into your flower garden. Here, we’ll take a look at both methods.
If you’re looking to start a flower garden, chances are you already have some ready-to-plant flower seeds in the back of your orchids or other garden plants. Some people simply throw these things in their flower garden with the hopes of getting something new. However, by planting those seeds in a flower garden, you are creating a living organism that will nurture itself. If you’re willing to commit about three months to this process, you will be rewarded with beautiful plants and flowers for many years. If you’re patient, you may even be able to leave behind some seeds for the next generation of plants.
If you have the time and are comfortable with planting seeds, you could try planting wildflower seeds. Just make sure that you scatter the seeds at least four feet away from each other. Also, spread them out so they won’t take over your flower garden. Even though you won’t get anything new (seed that is), you’ll at least be able to continue to grow what you’ve planted. In fact, you may even be able to sell some of the plants to other people or to make money off of them by selling their offspring.
Before you start planting, you should have a plan. This can include finding a spot for your seeds to be planted, figuring out which flower crops you’re going to grow, and deciding on the colors of the plants. After you’ve figured all of this out, then it’s time to scatter those wildflower seeds. Start by setting a line up to where the seeds will be dropped off. This line should be about a foot away from the edge of wherever you are planting.
Then, fill in the area that you have determined with a bed of pebbles. The wildflowers will fall into this bed as they try to get to the ground level. When you’re finally ready to cover the area with more pebbles, you’ll be able to make the wildflower seeds lie comfortably on top of the pebbles. After you scatter the wildflower seeds, you’ll be able to sit back and watch them grow.
