How to Grow a Mini Meadow

A meadow brings the charm of untamed nature into the garden space. You don’t need to live in a pastoral landscape to enjoy the boundless beauty of wildflowers at home – you can create a mini meadow with a just little bit of soil and your favorite wildflower seeds.

There Are Three Main Methods For Growing A Mini Meadow:

1. Create an area from scratch on a patch of bare soil

  • Pick an area in your yard that gets plenty of sunlight
  • Prepare the ground by raking the soil, and gently tapping the surface
  • Sprinkle a thin layer of your chosen wildflower seeds onto the soil
  • Water the entire area - you want the soil to be wet without any puddles

2. Enhance your lawn or empty garden bed

  • Rake the area where you'd like to see wildflowers growing
  • Sprinkle a thin layer of your wildflower seeds
  • Water the area as directed above

3. Potted wildflowers

  • Fill your containers with peat-free compost
  • Sprinkle a thin layer of wildflower seeds into the soil
  • Water carefully and place in direct sunlight
  • Check and water the soil regularly. It should always be damp
