Wildflower Seeds Advice & Tips

Wildflower seeds are perfect for those who want to add some vibrancy to their garden and encourage wildlife to visit. At Boston Seeds, we have over 100 wildflower seeds native to the UK available as individual species or in wildflower mixtures. Our mixes are carefully developed to provide a wide range of flowers, perfect for pollinators and habitat creation. 

You can find our guide to UK wildflower species, with a free downloadable PDF, to find the best wildflower seeds for your garden. This is incredibly helpful for those who like to plan their garden in advance as it not only gives information on when plants will best grow, but the light and moisture conditions they need to thrive. You’ll be surprised how many wildflower seeds can grow in areas other flowers struggle to, like shaded areas and hedgerows. 

If you would prefer to use a seed mix, we have a number of useful guides covering the contents of all our ColourMax range, including: ColourMax Annual Summer Bee Mixture and ColourMax Annual Seed Mixture. Once you have decided which wildflower seeds are right for you, we can help you work out how much wildflower seed you need to blanket your space in flowers.

Whether you choose your seeds individually or as a seed mix, our handy guides on how to establishing a wildflower garden and maintaining a wildflower garden will help you keep your space thriving and alive with colour. 

If you still have questions on your wildflower seed needs, you can get in touch with us here and we’ll be more than happy to help.
