Last autumn I took the top soil off an area of lawn and put down wildflower / grass mix and threw in extra wildflower seeds – poppies, cornflower, etc For added measure I added some extra flower seeds at Easter I know have some of the grasses but not a single flower seems to have grown What could be the problem? I was expecting a few flowers by now!

Many of these plants take a while to flower and would not be flowering now unless sown in September or before. Some will start soon, and some may not flower until next year, and some of the seeds never come through.

The spring was quite dry and may not have suited very well.
