- Sprinkle your pods onto a cleared area – to prevent grass and weeds choking your emerging wildflower seedlings
- Sow when the soil is moist and the earth is warm – spring (after last frost) and autumn (before wet & cold) are best; summers will need more conscientious watering to ensure the seedlings survive a dry spell
- Water is key for releasing the seeds from the clay pods. Over time rain & watering will do the job. For quicker results, you could soak your pod in water for 15 minutes before planting, taking care not to throw the water away as some of the seeds are tiny and wil float
- Many wildflowers are slow growers : some species - cornfield annuals, for example – will germinate very quickly, whilst the perennials are slow to establish and will not flower in first year.
