Sowing wildflower seeds as domesticated garden pieces came to prominence in England during the late 19th Century. The wealthy of the time grew tired of the formal and redundant flower beds of the past and became more interested in gardens mimicking the “wild” and “natural” of real flowers. Poets and writers of the time did away with the typical roses and hedges and started to focus on the unpredictability of wildflowers. Buy Partial Shade Wildflower Mix online. Small to bulk quantities.
