Q.Wild Flower Patch

Zone Northern irelabd | Anonymous added on March 22, 2021 | Answered

I planted a wild flower patch last year – about 10sq m. At the end of the season I let a lot of the flowers ‘go to seed’. The patch is now starting to show life but apart from the obvious I can’t differentiate between wild flowers and weeds. Also I wish to sow more seeds for a continuous display. Should I take it allot leave it

There's isn't an answer that doesn't involve some manual labor. The wildflowers should push through and survive and, if you reseed it, they should dominate the weeds eventually.
