Yes you can, and what comes up can be a great delight - you will recognise the weeds when it is necessary - and if you did just scatter, the most likely thing is that the majority of the seedlings will be what you sowed. When we have moved house to a virtually empty garden I have been known to mix a few packets of annuals and just sling them about while I have decided what to do in the longer term - have had some glorious results - so, if you want to - go for it. Of course, you can be much more sensible than me, and sow them in patterns or wavy lines as someone see suggested, does make the weeds easier to see and remove - and when they all bush up you won't see the lines you sowed, just lots of pretty flowers. Must agree about free being the favourite price - I like that!!
