Sunshine for my wildflower meadow

We had a sunny warm day on the 5th of March to help us sow our wildflower meadow.

First we identified plant species in our area where we wanted to create a new wild flower meadow.  We found a nice sunny spot with only Dock leaves and Stinging nettles so we decided to use this area.

Next we dug up the soil as the wildflower seeds (cornflower, corn poppy etc) like to grow on rough stony ground.


Then we mixed the wildflower seeds with sand and scattered them in our prepared area. We covered the seeds with soil to prevent birds from eating them and watered the area.

Now we just have to hope for more sunny weather to help our seeds germinate, fingers crossed!
