There may be wildflower seeds of native species in the ground from years gone by. To achieve this approach is simple:
- Do not use any fertilizers or treatments on your lawn. Do not add anything that could increase the nutrient value of the soil. Most wildflowers thrive better in nutrient rich soil. Also, do not use any pesticides / insecticides.
- Mow only twice in the year – we mowed early in the spring, then again late autumn. If you wish you can always mow a ‘path’ through the lawn. Mown paths can look quite attractive.
