15°C (59°F) Wildflower cluelessness

I’ve been preparing beds for wildflowers since late last year – shredding leaves, putting down mulch to smother the grass and soften the soil. I was slow to order seeds, and only when they came did I remember that the natural season for planting – when the flowers drop seeds on their own – is fall
. Ah, well. Some of them should start on their own in spite of me. The others need a few weeks of “cold stratification” before they’ll germinate (a little soil, a little water in a baggie in the refrigerator). We’ll be well past any frost by the time they’re ready in mid-June. I just hope they have long enough to get established before frost returns (if it ever leaves, that is :-)
