Create Beautiful Landscapes with Wildflower Mixtures

The interest in establishing flowering fields comprised of wildflowers and flowering herbs has grown in recent years. It is important to understand that a flowering field will not usually grow well on its own accord. It requires careful cultivation. If the proper steps are taken establishing a flowering field and certain maintenance is done, a wildflower field will truly blossom.

Establishing New Flowering Fields

When establishing a flowering field in cultivated soil, such as former agricultural soil, problems may arise due to excessive nutrients in the soil and/or a large a number of existing weeds. It may be necessary to combat these weeds with chemicals, or possibly allow existing plants to wither, and then remove the dead material. It is important not to add nutrients to the soil during the conversion process. In general, soil that is low in nutrients will provide the best conditions for a flowering field. The soil can then be plowed and harrowed, or turned with the help of a rotary cultivator, to create a suitable bed for planting. Alternatively, the soil can be allowed to remain fallow over the summer, i.e. to repeat harrowing and allow as many weed seeds to sprout as possible.

Flowering Fields in Existing Grass Covered Areas

Establishing a flowering field in an existing area covered by grass quite challenging. If the existing grass is fairly dense and well fertilized, it may be almost impossible. The established grass will outgrow sprouting wildflowers. If the existing grass is more spread out, the chances of success are better. For the best results follow these simple procedures:

  • Using an herbicide, spray out existing plants in the area to be planted into wildflowers. Do this during late summer one or two times as necessary to eliminate undesirable plants.
  • Remove the dead plant material.
  • Seed during the fall of that same year.

The herbs will begin to sprout during the following spring – naturally dominated by the annuals during the first year. For those who do not wish to use chemicals prior to planting, it may be necessary to remove entire sections of sod in order to eliminate undesirable plant material. In this case, a certain number of unwanted species are sure to germinate and must be expected.

Planting

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.
