Many thanks to you both for your good advice. As this is a new venture
for me I'm really excited about it (and probably a little too impatient!!) We
don't have deer, but I'm hoping that the wildflower garden will be helpful to
bees, butterflies etc. once it gets going! Unfortunately the firm I bought the
seeds from sent them in plain packaging, so all the information I've been
able to find has been on the internet so far. I have since found that cow parsley
seeds take 8 to 10 weeks to germinate - so I have a long wait for those!!
I have sown the five varieties I mentioned in my first post in seed trays, as I
too was worried that something might eat them before they had chance to thrive!
