There is no info on your profile TheSeed. Can you explain who 'we' refers to. Where are you based, who are your customers and what are the items being sent out to them?

I would pot it on and plant it out when it's a bit bigger. Keep it in a shady spot where you can keep an eye on it and water as required

The idea that all wildflowers need nutrient poor soil is a myth. Some might do well on it but they're just plants, all with different needs.

I use pots and plant out when they're big enough.

I've no experience of sending or receiving germinated seeds by post though I know this is done.

What type of wild flowers are you trying to grow?

Sowing seed into such a weed-ridden area is not going to be very successful, I'd pot grow and transplant when they're big enough to compete but annuals are usually best direct sown. Not and easy choice. 

Annual weeds are best hand pulled or hoed before they seed. Deep rooted perennials, glyphosated. Don't cover glyphosated weeds.
