Sowing wildflower seeds as domesticated garden pieces became popular in England during the late 19th Century. The privileged of the time grew tired of the formal and redundant flower beds of tradition and became more interested in gardens mimicking the “wild” and “natural” of real flowers. Various poets and writers of the time did away with classic roses and hedges and embraced the unpredictability of wildflowers. Bulk and wholesale sizes for sale.
