Wildflower establishment requires some important steps:
- Site selection/preparation: It's important to address competition from weeds: pull, till, or use organic herbicides. If planting in the spring/summer you can wait for weeds to germinate, control and then plant the wildflower seeds.
- Seeding: You will want to have good seed to soil contact, broadcasting by hand is a good approach on small plot, may want to mix with an inert carrier, sand or other. Raking in and covering with soil 2-3 times seed thickness.
- Watering: During establishment for the first month, can be from rain in spring or supplement with irrigation.
- Timing: The best time to plant is in spring to early summer and even again in late fall.
