Keep reading on to find out more.
Are wildflowers really low maintenance?
Chances are you’ve marvelled at a beautiful array of wildflowers in someone’s garden before. But with such beauty, it must take quite a bit of work to achieve such results, right? Wrong! Wildflowers are exactly that – wild. They are happy to be left alone to grow and thrive without intervention, making them the ideal choice for people who can’t devote every weekend to gardening activities.
How to plant wildflowers in your garden
You can plant wildflowers with seeds, wildflower turf or use pot plants. While using pot plants is probably the most expensive route, it does help being able to pick the strongest plants you see at your local garden centre. Simply plant these into the soil as normal.
You can also grow wildflowers from seed. This is the cheapest way to plant wildflowers and lets you handpick the range you’d like to go for.
Lastly, you can get wildflowers in your garden by laying wildflower turf. This is a great way to have wildflowers in an instant without waiting for them to grow over time. The laying process may be slightly tedious and time-consuming, but once it’s over you’ll have wildflowers for years to come.
