Wildflower seed giveaway

Wildflower seed mix giveaway

​​

Consider planting some wildflowers in your garden this year - not only will you enjoy the flowers, so will our local pollinators!

Native Wildflower Seed Giveaway


The wildflower seed giveaway was open to residents from Calgary on April 11-18th, 2022 and is now closed.

Why choose wildflowers?

  • Many are local — familiar to our native pollinators and able to withstand the climate of Calgary.
  • They bloom for long periods at varying times — this ensures pollinators have sources of nectar and pollen available from early spring through to the end of fall.
  • They provide shelter — many native bees like to use flower stems for nesting.

How to plant wildflowers

  1. Place seeds into flower pot or bed with firmly packed soil. Ensure the area will not have competition from other plants.
  2. Cover seeds with 0.3 cm (1/8’’) of soil and press down firmly.
  3. Water on a regular basis to keep surface moist.
  4. After germination, thin out or transplant flowers so they are 25 - 30cm (10 - 12’’) apart.

These species will grow best in a dry to moist, sunny area. Flowers may not bloom until the second season.
