About Wild Flower Seeds
If you're tired of seeing the same old flowers pop up in your front garden every time spring rolls around, then why not replace them with some exciting wild flower alternatives? A great gift for keen gardeners and anthophiles alike, our online assortment of wild flower seeds allows you to grow your very own field of fantastic wild flowers. With packets of wild flower seeds starting at just 30 seeds and increasing up to substantial packets of 12000 seeds, selecting the perfect species and number of wild flowers for your outdoor space has never been easier thanks to OnBuy.
Which wild flower varieties are the most popular?
Not sure which species of wild flower to introduce into your garden? Some of the most sought-after wild flowers include stunning varieties like the delicate, pale yellow blooms of primrose, alongside the hawkmoth and butterfly-enticing cheddar pink, and even the dainty yet pungent-smelling lily-of-the-valley. Alternatively, we also suggest checking out some of the UK's all-time favourite wild flowers which include the beautiful bright red common poppy, as well as stunning snowdrops and vivid bluebells. These kinds of wild flowers are ideal for adding a touch of colour back into lack-lustre gardens while also encouraging wildlife such as bees and butterflies to frequently pay a visit to your outdoor area.
Plus, growing your own wild flowers is a cost-effective option compared to buying and planting the fully-grown version. Once the ground has been appropriately prepared and layered with plenty of growth-boosting fertiliser, the seeds can be easily sprinkled on top and dampened with water to give them the best chance of sprouting. A key part of planting your wild flowers is to ensure there's enough space between each seed - every budding wild flower sprout has the potential to become a flourishing flower with sprawling roots that requires plenty of space, sunlight, water and nutrients, so it's important that they're not competing with each other for these essential ingredients.
When's the best time to plant wild flower seeds?
Ideally, you should aim to sow your wild flower seeds in either autumn or springtime for the most captivating results. In general, the period between September and November is often the perfect time to wrap up and start planting your seeds as wild flowers would naturally fall to the ground and start to germinate once the autumnal rains begin to descend. Although it may be tempting to make the most of the pleasant summer weather, waiting until this autumn period will increase the likeliness of your wild flowers successfully sprouting. You should also take into account how often you want to plant wild flowers as the annual species like common poppies and cornflowers require yearly re-sowing while perennial varieties like clover, yarrow and cowslips will come back year after year after year giving you a much more low-maintenance patch of wild flowers. Our online array of wild flower seeds features all kinds of species from reliable manufacturers like JustSeed, SAFLAX and Mr. Fothergill's - enjoy!
