In connection with excessive use of chemicals in agriculture and horticulture, degradation of the so-called buffer zones, there is a lack of valuable food and shelter for wild pollinators. Each of us, planting a micro flower meadow in a garden or pot, makes a small gesture of friendship towards the environment. This portion of seeds is enough for a pot sized 60 x 20cm.
The seed mix contains flax, cornflower, poppy, chamomile and other wild flowers naturally found in our landscape.
1. Fill the pot with soil. It’s best to use garden soil based on compost.
2. Sow the seeds evenly in the pot. A large plant will grow from each seed. Scatter your wildflower seeds over the soil by hand – a little at a time for an even spread. Too much seeds in a small area will cause the plants to compete with each other and stretch out looking for light.
3. Lightly press the seeds into the ground Thanks to this, the seeds will stay in place. They can be additionally sprinkled with soil. It is important that they have access to the sun and at the same time ensure good contact with wet ground.
4. Water and place the pot outside Finally, the seeds sown should be watered abundantly. Soon the first roots will appear that will tie the plant to the site. Watering is extremely important in the first weeks after sowing. When the plants finish intensive growth, regular watering will no longer be so important.
5. Collect seeds and share with others When the flowers are pollinated, the petals will fall, and the plant will begin to form seeds.
Shortly after drying, you can collect them and save them for the next season. We encourage you to share your seeds and create more potted biodiversity hotspots.
