Proper watering  

One of the most appealing characteristics of wildflowers is the little amount of attention they require. However, to withstand the harsh summer conditions, you must provide your wildflower garden with an appropriate amount of water. This amount varies, depending on your climate and annual rainfall in your region. In dryer climates, you can expect to provide up to 1/2 inch in supplemental watering.image1-Jul-16-2020-06-59-04-39-PM

Soil health  

Our wildflowers provide many benefits to your home, including beautification to hide unsightly parts of your yard, supporting insects and birds, and improving soil health. If poor soil health is beginning to threaten your wildflowers' growth, you can treat the area with all-natural compost or an effective fertilizer from your local nursery or garden center. To prevent unwanted weeds, conduct a routine "weed-check" to pull growth and spray with pesticides every few weeks.
