Preparation guide:

Wildflower Site Preparation The site should be weed-free. Annual weeds should be controlled by mechanical means or by the use of a contact-based herbicide. Perennial weeds, for example, docks thistle, nettles, and couch grass can be dealt with using a translocated herbicide such as Round-Up. Cultivate to achieve a fine seedbed, sow seed mix and then roll to ensure firmness. The best results are obtained when there is good contact between the soil and the seeds. Sowing Times Sowing can best be achieved by mixing the seed with dry sand, dry sifted topsoil, or sawdust and evenly broadcast. It is important that the seed is in contact with moisture in the soil so the seedbed should be lightly raked and then rolled.
