Sowing should be done on bare soil, free of weeds.
Autumn sowings favour poppies and spring favour corn-cockles
Leave the plants to self seed, clear them away in spring and rake over the ground to remove weeds and encourage seed to germinate
Additional sowings may be required in the first few years until the wildflower seed bank increases in the soil
