Annual wildflower seed mixes are easy to grow and maintain
Planting annual wildflower seed mixes is so easy—it’s a great project for the whole family to get in on! First, choose a planting site that has good drainage and receives partial to full sun. Bare the area for planting by pulling any weeds and disturbing the soil with a rake.
Next, simply scatter the wildflower seeds over the area by hand or with a seed spreader. You can mix the seeds with sand to make sowing easier. Gently press the seeds into the soil, but don’t bury them too deeply, as the seeds need light to germinate. Carefully water the planting area, and within a week or so the seeds will sprout!
Water wildflower seedlings occasionally and keep the young seedlings weeded, but once established, wildflowers are fairly drought-tolerant and require little care. While annual flowers complete their whole life cycle in a year, these wildflowers are vigorous self-seeders—so you’re sure to see volunteers pop up in the wildflower meadow for seasons to come.
Attract native pollinators with annual wildflower seed mixes
Save the bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds with annual wildflower seed mixes. While any pollinator would make a beeline for any one of these nectar-rich wildflower mixes, native bees are especially drawn to the Bee Happy Organic Bee Attractor Pollinator Mix. Hummingbirds and butterflies are drawn to trumpet-shaped flowers in shades of pink, purple, and red—the Colorful Climbers Mix or Pink Perfection will certainly catch their eye.
If we had to pick just one wildflower mix, we’d have to go with the All-Annual Wildflower Mix. Suitable for all USDA hardiness zones and comprised of 20 species of bold and beautiful annual wildflowers, The All-Annual Wildflower Mix is hard to beat.
