Happlify: the best shopping guide + blog

Do you long for a garden bursting with colors, where bees buzz and butterflies dance? By creating a natural sea of ​​flowers, this dream can become reality. Not only does such a sea of ​​flowers provide a cheerful spectacle, but it also really contributes to the local ecosystem and biodiversity.

Follow these steps to bring a piece of wild nature to your backyard. Good news in terms of timing, because sowing is possible from March.

Your own wild flower meadow step by step

  1. Preparing the soil
    First remove all plants that are already there. Try not to mess with the soil too much, so that the new flower seeds can grow easily and the life in the soil is not disturbed. Depending on the size of your garden and whether it is important to you to protect life in the soil, you can do different things such as removing the top layer of soil.

  2. When do you start?
    The best time to sow your flowers is early spring (between March and May) or late summer (until the end of September). Find a spot in the sun, because wildflowers love it. The soil should not be too rich in nutrients. If your soil contains a lot of clay, you can mix in some sand to make it less fertile.

  3. Seed selection
    Use a special mix of wildflower seeds , such as red clover, poppy, cornflower and daisy. These mixes suit the weather and soil in your area and help attract many different plants and animals.

Maintenance: simplicity is beautiful

  1. Mow
    Limit mowing to just twice a year: once in March and again after first bloom, usually in late July through August, to help the flowers reseed themselves.

  2. Water
    The unique thing about a natural sea of ​​flowers is that it requires little maintenance. Watering is usually not necessary except during prolonged drought.

All benefits at a glance of your own flower paradise

A garden full of wildflowers is not just an 'easy garden'; it is a cheerful hotspot for all kinds of animals! From fluttering butterflies to busy bees, your sea of ​​flowers offers a buffet and a cozy home, turning your garden into one big biodiverse party. Yes, you will have to put some time and love into it, but what you get back is priceless: a vibrant, colorful oasis that not only makes you happier but also boosts the local ecosystem. Large or small, every garden can transform into a wildflower meadow. So what are you waiting for? Dive into adventure and create your own piece of paradise, where nature plays and life celebrates!
