How To Grow

Sow seeds on the surface of a well draining seed raising mix. Cover to the depth of the seed width with light soil or vermilculite. Keep the seed tray moist but not overly wet as you do not want the seeds to rot. 

Place pots in a partly shaded area to keep them from drying out. Maintain a warm temperature, ideally 18-22°C . In cooler areas it may be beneficial to cover pots and trays with clear polythene to retain moisture and warmth.

In the right conditions germination commences within 21-60 days. For ideal results it is generally best to avoid sowing Wildflower seeds in the hottest and coldest months. 

Wildflower Seed Starter Granules are recommended for use with sowing wildflower seeds. Smoke treatment can assist with germination and results in stronger seedlings, helping to improve their survival rate after germination. 

Simply sow the seeds as directed on the packet and lightly apply the granules over the top before the first watering. Then lightly water the granules to initiate germination.
