Seeds to sow in August

August is a great time to sow Wild Flowers. The soil is warm and seeds germinate fast producing lovely healthy plants before winter sets in. British wildflowers are quite hardy and will survive the worst of our winter weather. As soon as temperatures warm up in spring they’ll start producing more shoots and leaves ready for flowering in early summer. Buy them individually or in collections for specific areas of your garden.

Order Annual Seeds August is a great time to plan your Cutting Patch or Annual flower scheme for next year. Order your favourite seeds now to make sure you get exactly what you want. I recommend sowing super hardy annuals outdoors at the end of August or in September so your new plants can produce good foliage and roots before it becomes too cold. You’ll always get the strongest plants with most flowers by sowing early like this and you’ll save precious time in spring too.

If you’re looking for beautiful plants to grow with your spring bulbs then sow plenty of Biennials such as Wallflowers, Forget-me-nots, Iceland Poppies and Sweet William. Taller plants like Foxgloves, Honesty and Sweet Rocket are brilliant in semi shaded places. Get them in now in August because they need to form sturdy young plants before winter sets in. Biennials are brilliant for early flowers next spring and just a little forward planning pays off big time. Many Biennials are beautiful in your garden, excellent for wildlife and brilliant for cut flowers too.

  1. You can have MASSES of blooms in a colour scheme of your choice.
  2. There’s no need to break the bank… seeds are plentiful and INEXPENSIVE.
  3. There’s little effort required and anyone can do it. Sow them outdoors and let them grow on either in a ‘nursery’ bed OR where you want them to flower next spring.
