April is the perfect time – even in the colder climates – to plant flowers from seed outside. I documented the process we took to plant our garden three years ago. I share it here in hopes that you’ll gain your own ideas and inspiration for growing your own “wild” garden of flowers.
After mixing the soil and seeds we spread it evenly all over our flower bed. This creates a “wild” flower garden, which I just love. There is no rhyme or reason to where the seeds fall.
We keep it watered and play the waiting game – for several weeks – until the seeds start sprouting. Now the fun really begins. We all learn to identify what each flower is by looking at the leaves.

|(peppermint zinnia, purple wildflower, poppy)|

It really is beautiful to see! Even the hummingbirds enjoy our “wild” flowers.
Get excited for spring! Create a little spot in your yard for a “wild” flower garden.
