    Scattering seeds is simply another term for sowing seeds. Generally, you place some seeds (such as wildflower seeds) in your hand and lightly 'scatter' them throughout the planting bed. This method usually does not require soil coverage, though you can lightly rake over the area to cover the seeds if desired. Scattered seeds will eventually germinate (given water and light), filling the area with beautiful flowers. Note: many of the seeds used in wildflower mixes are from self-seeding varieties.
