Wildflower patch aftercare
Keep the rows free from recognisable weeds over winter. In March the plants should start to grow strongly and naturally keep down most weeds.
It shouldn’t be necessary to provide support, especially if you’ve sown a few strong growers such as borage, which will help support the others.
With the mix recommended, there’ll be a long flowering period and as some plants finish, others will start so there’ll be diverse flora for wildlife.
By September most will have finished flowering so you can pull up the plants, rake the soil, remove any weeds and there should be lots of seeds in the soil to repeat the display. As some plants will find your conditions more to their liking than others you’ll find the balance of flowers changes over time.
