Choosing the area for a Wildflower Garden Wildflower Gardens are expected to be informal and may look a little untidy. With a few years the wildflowers will grow and reproduce on their own creating a backyard oasis that is uniquely yours.
The general formula for planting wildflowers is
*1/4 lb for 250-500 square feet *1/2 lb for 500-1000 square feet
*1 lb for 1000-2000 square feet
We like this generous equation as it allows you to plant the seeds dense enough to out-compete the weeds.
