Grow Wild - Campaign to get UK people to grow more native wild flowers

Posted: 30/07/2014 at 13:58

There's a lot of confusion about growing wildflowers and people pass on bits of it without understanding.

If you grow wildflowers in grass in very fertile soil the grass will overwhelm the flowers.

If you grow wild flowers on their own in fertile soil they will grow well.

New raised beds, clumpy soil, advice please?

Get the lumpy bits up to the top and leave them over winter. rain and frost will break them down.

Mine covered the entrance to the summerhouse earlier in the year and is hardening off the new growth now.  

Just you wait, pansy face is right off over the fence and further if it gets a chance. I saw it in the garden of a residential home, it had covered an area at least 40 foot long and 20 wide, taken in 4 rotary clothes lines and the fences on all four sides. It was lovely

Don't let it seed. It's very deep rooted, you may have to resort to glyphosate or something
