Special treatment for wildflower seeds

Scarification :- The germination of some seeds is greatly improved by rubbing the seeds lightly between two sheets of sandpaper. this enables the moisture in the soil to penetrate the seed coat.
Species that benefit from this treatment are:- Burnet, Salad; Clovers; Crane's-bills; Liquorice Wild; Medic Black; Melilots; rock Rose; Restharrows; Trefoils; Vetches and other members of the pea family.

Stratification :- A number of seeds have to be subjected to a period of cold during winter before germination takes place in the spring. You can provide the period of cold by adding the seed to damp sand and putting it in a plastic bag in the fridge for 6-8 weeks. Or sow them in a cold frame in the autumn.
Species that benefit from this technique are :- Bellflower clustered, Bluebell, Burnet-Saxifrage, Carrot Wild, Cowslip, Honeysuckle, Lords & Ladies, Mignonette, Ramsons, oxlip, Primrose, Violets, Weld and all Sedges.
