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.

Planting wild flowers in a previously heavy weeded area?

Posted: 17/05/2015 at 19:55

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.

In the corner formed by the goosegrass and the alkanet

Don't be embarrassed to show your weeds. If I was better with a camera I could show you more than that
