How to sow wildflower butterfly and bee seeds

The butterfly and bee seeds are a piece of cake to sow – best own in Spring.  Simply choose a sunny, weed-free spot (or a pot of peat-free compost) and sprinkle on the seeds.  No need to cover them with soil/compost – just gently press them into the soil.  Water well and wait for them to germinate, watering if necessary.
