I have a small pot with annual and bi-annual summer flowers so was thinking of trying those.  No idea what the people I know have got in their mix.

People I know are trialling it for transplanting at a railway station wild flower garden.  They did try direct sowing but found that this didn't work.   If you did start this in a seed tray would you do this indoors until they germinate - transferring to a cold frame later?

Hello all, has anyone made or heard about making a wildflower turf out of old blankets/ towels cut up and put into seed trays then covered with a bit of compost, then sprinkle wildflower seeds on top - to make a wildflower garden.

Any help please  Do these work?
