How to grow wildflowers in your garden

Bring your garden to life with a mini wildflower meadow . Butterflies, bees, hummingbirds and other animals will thank you. You can sow them in spring between March and April in the northern hemisphere (or between September and October in the southern hemisphere), or do it in early fall in September (or March in the southern hemisphere).

Step 1

Rake the area you want to convert to a meadow and remove weeds and large stones.

Step 2

Mix the seeds of the wildflowers with dry sand to make it easier to spread and so that you know what areas you have planted.

Step 3

With the back of the rake, smooth the surface to ensure that the seeds are in contact with the ground but are not buried deep.

Step 4

Protect the wildflower seeds from hungry birds by placing some ropes with CDs.

Step 5

If the weather is very dry, water once a week.

Step 6

In a few weeks your mini wildflower meadow will grow vigorously. Some plants will be able to grow in as little as 6 weeks and others take a little longer.

Other methods to scare away birds

You can place the image of a giant owl on one of the walls of your garden so that they will be scared when they see it.

There is also a gel that is applied on cornices or other surfaces, it is not applied on plants or grass . Contact with the gel is unpleasant for birds. Once you apply it, its duration is two years.

Another very interesting method is to place several speakers with different sounds of animals, birds of prey, annoying noises, etc. This will keep the birds away from your mini meadow, although it is also true that many of them get used to the sound, so it is not 100 percent effective.

Some of the most popular wildflowers are daisy, bluebells (botanically known as convolvulus sabatis), hyacinth, gerberas, hydrangea, gardenia, saffron flower, saint lucia flower, anemone, poppy , the lily, among others. All of them have a great color, so you can not stop having them in your garden.
