Furthermore, where is the best place to plant wildflowers? When you're ready to plant your wildflower seeds, choose an outdoor spot with well-draining soil that gets full sun or a little bit of shade.

Can you just scatter wildflower seeds?
Ideally, leave your prepared soil for about two weeks so any dormant weeds or grasses that come to life can be removed before you sow your seeds. Scatter your wildflower seeds over the soil by hand - a little at a time for an even spread. Seeds need sunlight, so be careful not to bury them or they won't grow.
