Wildflowers are a quick and easy way to make your garden more bug friendly, and they look beautiful too! The flowers will provide pollen and nectar for bees and butterflies, and the leaves are a great food source and shelter for other insects as well.
Wildflower seeds can be planted in flower beds, or if you’re short on space, any container with drainage holes in the bottom will work as well. The best time to sow the seeds is at the beginning of Autumn. Start by preparing your container or beds with suitable compost, and then sprinkle your seeds on top and gently press them into the soil. Lightly water the compost and make sure it doesn’t dry out whilst the seeds are growing.
