When Should I Plant Wildflowers?

For all types of flowers, there is the right time of the year for planting and the wrong time of the year. Knowing this, which time of the year is best for planting wildflowers? Unfortunately, there isn’t a set time when all wildflowers should be planted. The best time for planting will vary depending on the specific type of wildflower and whether or not you are planting it from seed or as a grown plant.

A good place to start when you are to be planting wildflowers from seed is reading the instructions on any seed-packets you happen to have. Most seed-packets will specify the best time for planting -be it spring, summer, or early fall. Some will even mention specific months. The seed-packet should also state the ideal planting depth and water requirements for the specific wildflowers.

For times when you don’t have a seed-packet or you plan to relocate a grown plant, you’ll have to do a little research to determine which type of wildflowers or wildflower seeds you have. When you know the type of wildflowers you will be planting, it will be much easier to search for their ideal planting time. If you are unable to identify the particular type of wildflower, you can always try planting at different times of the year to maximize your chances of success.

Wildflowers, like any other type of flower, all have an ideal time of the year for being planted in the ground. By doing a little research or reading the instructions on the seed packet, you can learn what the ideal time is for planting your particular types of wildflowers or wildflower seeds. Planting wildflowers during their ideal time will help them to bloom to their fullest potential.
