Answer #1 · Gardenality.com's Answer · The best time to plant wildflower seeds in your garden will depend on the climate, rainfall patterns, and what type of wildflower seeds it is you intend to plant. In cool climates, plant annuals, biennials, perennials and mixtures of these in spring, early summer or late fall. When planting in fall, you want to make sure that you do so late enough in the season that the seeds will not germinate. If annual seeds germinate in the fall the seedlings will not mature enough to produce flowers and reseed themselves before winter sets in. Regarding perennial wildflower seeds (one's that will return from the roots every year) these can be sown in spring, early summer or fall as well, provided there is 10-12 weeks of growing time before the plants go dormant. In mild climates, where there is no frost, for best results, wildflower seeds should be planted during the cooler months of the year, fall through spring. Keep in mind that after planting wildflower seeds, they will need water in order to sprout and grow. Irrigation, such as using rotary sprinklers, can be beneficial. Hope this info helped.)
