The best time to planting a permanent flowering field is the fall. This fits well with the natural seed dissemination of the herbs. Many species will sprout during the spring, after the cold of winter has broken the dormancy of the seeds and allowed germination to begin. Other species will sprout immediately and face the winter as small plants.

Caring for Flowering Fields

In general, flowering fields should only be mowed once a year during the late summer, after the main flowering period. Mowing should be carried out with a rotary or flail mower, and the cut material should be removed from the area. Fields of flowers should not be fertilized. If large quantities of unwanted plants appear during the first year, it may be necessary to mow the field twice, mowing for the first time before the unwanted species spread their seeds.
