How to create your own wildflower garden

If you’ve ever watched, say, the Chelsea Flower Show and thought to yourself, ‘Gosh, wouldn’t a wildflower meadow be lovely?’ then you’re in the right place. Yes, wildflower meadows are lovely, and even lovelier than that - they are amazingly easy to look after.

So why are wildflowers so easy to look after? Well, the simple fact is that wildflowers THRIVE in poor soil conditions so starving your soil of nutrients is highly beneficial for their growth. This is one of the only time’s that being a horticultural Horlicks will really pay off.

To create your desired wildflower garden, you will need to pick one of our wildflower mixes – you can do that by browsing our site or by asking one of our experts. 

Once you’ve picked and purchased your mix, you should plan to sow your wildflower seeds in March. To do that, we’ve created a quick ten step plan for you to follow.

  1. Remove the top 5-10cm of soil to reduce soil fertility
  2. Remove any plants or grass in your preferred space by hand or by weed killer
  3. Remove any stones or debris
  4. Dig the soil over and firm it down by foot
  5. Rake over the soil to create a level seed bed
  6. Scatter the seed by hand or by a handheld spreader
  7. Sow at a rate of 5g per m2
  8. Rake lightly to cover the seed
  9. Water the area
  10. Grow wild, because you’ve just created your own wildflower meadow!
