July is a great time to sow all sorts of flower seeds. This is a great month to sow Biennials such as Forget-me-Nots, Wallflowers and Sweet William for early flowering next Spring. You can carry on sowing Perennials and Wildflowers in July too. You can also sow quick growing Hardy Annuals such as Poppies and some Half Hardy Annuals such as Sunflowers. Get them going now and they’ll go on flowering until the winter cold sets in and the frost arrives.
There are so many lovely flowers to grow now. Do feel free to have a browse if you’d like some inspiration. You’ll find growing information for each flower here in the shop too.
