Tip #1 : Gentle Water

To prevent seeds from being dislodged or washed out, begin establishment by watering with a rain can or some other form of gentle application. Avoid watering directly with a garden hose. For large areas, gentle sprinkler application is acceptable.


Tip #2 : Maintain soil integrity

Continue gentle water application after plant emergence. Tender seedlings are susceptible to soil disturbance, and roots can be easily broken-off or dislodged.


Tip #3 : Attentive water schedule

Water once a day for at least four weeks. Wet or humid climates may require less. Arid climates may require twice daily. Once establishment has begun and plants are 3-4 inches tall, slowly transition from high-frequency low-duration watering to low-frequency high-duration watering.

Establishment:

When you plant can vary based on your climate, rainfall patterns and the species you are planting. Generally speaking, However, annuals and perennials or annual/perennial mixes perform best when planted in spring, early summer or late fall. If fall planting is your method, plant late enough in the fall that your seeds remain dormant and do not germinate until spring. Perennials can be planted in early fall if there are at least 10-12 weeks of growing time before the plants go into winter dormancy. In mild climates plant during cooler months for best results.

Site Preparation:

For best results plant on cleared ground. Remove all weeds, grasses and existing vegetation before planting. Loosen compacted soil by scraping, tilling or scarifying. Tilling should be utilized only when soil is very compact. If soil is tilled, take care not to plant seeds deeper than 1/4 inch.

Planting Rate:

Wildflowers are generally plated at a rate of four to five pounds per acre, although it is not unusually to recommend or plant six to eight pounds per acre. A planting rate in the minimum range is usually sufficient to establish a good stand of wildflowers on prepared soil with adequate maintenance. The maximum rate is recommended when ideal soil preparation and weed control are not possible, or when a maximum display is required. Poor perennial establishment may result if the maximum seeding rate is exceeded, as the plants will compete with each other for real estate, water and sunlight.

Watering:

The watering cycle for establishing wildflowers is similar to establishing a new lawn. Keep the soil wet during the establishment process. Success is most likely to be achieved if you begin by watering in a high frequency – low duration pattern. This generally means watering at least once a day if seeds are sown early spring. Two waterings per day may be necessary in late spring and early summer plantings, or in arid climates. At approximately 4-5 weeks you can reduce the frequency of watering. Be mindful of your wildflowers during the hottest and most intense sun days and supplement with additional water when necessary. Early morning watering is best.
