Organic Wildflower Seeds
By planting wildflowers, you invite insects and birds to return, feast on its nectar, pollinate and ensure that plants and crops flourish.
Insects make up two-thirds of all life on Earth. More importantly, these species are irreplaceable parts of the natural world. They are a key food source for birds and fish and play a vital role in forests and fields as decomposers. They also ensure that plants and crops flourish.
You can make a large impact on the environment by providing habitat for the pollinators throughout the places we live, work and play.
How to plant wildflowers seeds on your patio, garden, yard or deck?
You can sow the seeds any time from March until the end of October. If planted in fall, they will rest over the winter, establish root system and sprout in spring.
You can start by loosening up soil and raking through it. Remove weeds and aggressive growers.
Then evenly scatter seeds over the whole surface area. Every packet includes approximately 150 seeds that can cover an area of around 6 sq. ft.
Then go ahead, press the soil down firmly by stepping on it or using wood to press the seeds into the soil.
Water the soil or simply wait for it to rain. Native plants are adapted to local climate and soils, so generally require less care and watering. If there is a long period of heat and no rain, water every 1-2 weeks.
By supporting local pollinators, you increase local biodiversity, improve soil quality and help with water retention of soil to prevent flooding episodes.
