When to sow wildflowers

Q:  When is the best time to  sow wildflowers?

A: Wildflower seeds can be sown at any time of year but the best time is generally spring or autumn. Some wild flower seeds such as cowslip and Primrose seeds require  prolonged periods of cold to trigger germination, a process known as stratification.

The best time to sow Wildflower Seeds such as these,  is in the Autumn, and in trays of compost which are left outside and exposed to the winter’s weather. Germination should occur the following spring.
