Step by step Sow­ing your free Clarkia seeds

Amateur Gardening - - Your Gardening Week -

1

Weed the soil and re­move any de­bris such as stones and twigs. Then rake the sow­ing area to cre­ate a good seedbed and wa­ter it.

2

Scat­ter the seeds thinly in arcs and curves for an at­trac­tive, nat­u­ral look. The seedlings can be thinned when they have grown large enough to handle.

3

Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil and then gen­tly tamp it down us­ing the back of a rake to hold the seeds in place.

4

Stop birds eat­ing the seeds and cats us­ing the soil as a lit­ter tray by cov­er­ing the ground with a net­work of twigs or spray­ing it with a chem­i­cal de­ter­rent.
