I haven't yet sown my wildflower seed "mixes" as I wasn't sure whether they
would do too well in the seed trays. The ones I've sown in trays are individual
packets of foxgloves, cow parsley, field scabious, oxeye daisies and cowslips.
I'm still raking over the cultivated area for the mixed seeds and will probably sow
them straight into the ground in March. I have no idea whether it will work---just
hoping!! The ground is weed free now and is also unfurtilized, but I want to rake
it until it's a bit finer. The seed mixes have some of the above in them but also
poppies, ladies bedstraw, red campion, cornflowers etc. Is clover a good idea?
Would appreciate some more advice nutcutlet...you sound as if you really know
a thing or two about wildflowers! Many thanks!
