Wildflower Planting Instructions
One of the best things about wildflowers is how easy they are to grow!
There are two methods of seeding that a lot of my commercial customers use. The first is split/slice seeding. This is a cost effective method way of planting wildflowers when doing larger areas. Just be aware that some wildflower seeds are small and that this method may end up burying some varieties too deep. The second, and my favorite commercial application, is hydro seeding. This too saves time and money and allows you to seed large areas in a short amount of time. This application is “spraying” seed on the surface of a prepared area usually including syrupy mulch that allows for even distribution, helps hold the seed in place (great for seeding slopes!) and holds moisture as well that also speeds up germination of the seed.
