Is it time to indulge in flower gardening? Wildflower gardening is an excellent way to create a beautiful and eco-friendly garden that supports local wildlife and promotes biodiversity. Autumn is the perfect time to start a wildflower garden, as the cooler temperatures and moisture create the ideal conditions for seed germination and growth.
Hello Seedling offers a range of wildflower seed bombs that are perfect for autumn planting in Australia. In this guide, we will share some tips on selecting the right wildflowers, planting techniques, and maintenance tips to create a stunning garden of wildflowers.
When selecting wildflowers for your garden, consider the climate, soil type, and sunlight in your area. Some wildflowers prefer full sun, while others thrive in partial shade. Some wildflowers prefer well-drained soil, while others can tolerate moist soil.
Our Hello Seedling Seed Bombs have a range of flower varieties in each seed bomb that help adapt to the environment they are planted. We generally recommend that choosing a spot that has full morning sun will be perfect.
To begin planting, prepare the soil by removing weeds and debris, and loosen the soil. You can add organic compost or fertilizer to enhance soil nutrition. Next, scatter the wildflower seeds or seedbombs uniformly over the soil and press them lightly into the soil. Water the area well and keep the soil moist until the seedlings take root.
Once established, wildflowers require minimal maintenance, but keep the soil moist and weed-free. You can also remove any diseased or damaged foliage and deadhead the flowers to promote further blooms.
