Tips for successful wildflower seed germination

The biggest challenge to the establishment of all wildflower seeds is dominant grass species. Because of this, it’s important to prepare the soil and remove any traces of vegetation before sowing your wildflower seeds. Do not cultivate the ground too heavily as this can uncover dormant grass and weed seeds which will then germinate with your wildflowers and provide unwanted competition.

Wildflowers thrive in poorer soil conditions so do not add fertiliser or compost to the area prior to sowing. If possible, rake over the area on which you intend to sow and leave for a few weeks to see if any dormant seeds germinate. Remove any growth and then sow your wildflower seeds.

Suggested wildflower seed sowing rate

We recommend sowing our mixtures at a rate of 1.5 grams per square metre. For more densely populated growth this can be increased to 4 grams per square metre.

To encourage even distribution when scattering, wildflower seeds can be mixed with dry sand, sawdust, or flour at a weight ratio of 1:4 (seed to spreader).

Factors which affect successful wildflower seed germination

If the following conditions are met, most wildflower seeds can be sown from April to September.

Competition: ensure the ground is free from docks, thistles, nettles, and dormant grass seeds.

Temperature: the ground temperature should be above 12 degrees.

Moisture: dampen the soil before sowing and maintain soil moisture until the plants have established.

Soil contact: rake over the area prior to planting and cover the seeds with a sprinkling of fine soil after sowing.

Sowing depth: ensure the seeds are sitting just below the surface of the soil.

Some wildflowers are more dominant than others and some more sensitive to factors such as soil fertility and competition.

The level of shade, sunshine, annual rainfall and interference from insects and animals can also affect germination. For this reason, the composition of our own mixtures will vary year on year.
