Wild Flowers

Una O\’Neill Thornbury asked 13 years ago

I am planting grass and wild flowers into 8″ wide bowls for wedding centre pieces for next May. What flowers would you suggest that will be in bloom first week in May and when do i plant them? What tips do you have?

This project is next to impossible to successfully achieve… a warm spell and the plants flower too early. Wild flowers might not reliably flower at all.

It’s a nice idea but you would be better to wait until a couple of days before, go to a couple of garden centres, see what is on offer and plant up in flower, or go a week earlier and buy plants coming into flower.
