ATS - I once bought a bag of wildflower seeds from the agricoop. But when I got home and read the instructions it said you have to clear the ground first of all bad weeds, then dig and rake over before sprinkling the seeds.
I think we spread them on a patch which wasn't too bad, after lifting potatoes, and a few of them came up.
Sorry for being negative - I'm sure you can do it, you're both younger than we were at the time.
We can clear the land around the house quite a bit and get rid of the weeds but the wooded area is going to have to keep the ones there unless over time we get on top of it (or borrow some goats) but there will be a lot snowdrops, crocuses etc planted...watch this space
The Telegraph is simply The Sun for those on higher rate tax.
Having helped to plant a wild garden, meadow flowers I think, II remember it came up great the first year, but after that one flower dominated. Sorry. It wasn’t a pretty one. I can’t remember what it was. Now it’s mostly rough grass and weeds...
