The plants that are best suited to this type of farming is small bulbous and some lavish annual seeds, and in both cases it is desirable that the spring bloom and, if possible, early. Why? Because the Achilles heel of this crop is unkempt appearance that presents the field during the time between the plant and seed begins to vegetate or yellow leaves (in the case of the bulb) and you can not cut the grass . If flowering is early, the cycle will be fulfilled almost before most lawns into an accelerated rate of growth.
Bulbous plants are easier to grow, as they are fond of partial shade. Under a tree’s half shade, no grass grows too large and is likely to be given dichondra green, which is always spotless and requires no cuts. The most suitable trees are deciduous, losing leaves when spring-flowering bulbous plants vegetate let through more light to plants. In the warm season, however, with its physiological activity running at peak, trees extract water from the soil so that give a “charitable dryness” (beneficial to the bulbous, of course!) Which keeps in top shape to the bulbs at rest . A separate issue is planting: if the bulbs are large, traditionally cast and plant them in the place where they fell. Can also be used to mark the ground stones and so an uneven distribution design, with their corresponding cores and dispersion. This fact are well deep holes, as deep as possible to improve the ground with coarse sand and decomposed mulch locate the bulb so that the base thereof is at a depth equal to three times its length.
Annual herbaceous plants, meanwhile, presents another problem. Take for example the poppies. Sol need to grow, as well as weeds. As from early winter to late spring can not move the machine, the poppy patch of grass present an untidy appearance. This is relativized if the plantation is located, for example, in a corner of a park big enough.
How to sow?
Planting is easy: you work the soil well and disperse the seeds in autumn. They are so small that they can be mixed with sand to make distribution.
Then, all that remains pending good weather, when the meadow is lit.
Plant characteristics of a wild meadow
Plants form a wild meadow should be so comfortable with the climate and soil to reproduce spontaneously. In Greater Buenos Aires, the soil is clay, perhaps too heavy for bulbous. However, daffodils (Narcissus tazetta) and tears of the Virgin (Alliaun Allium triquetrum and neapolitanum) are safe bets. You can also grow daffodils, freesias (Freesia sp.), Grape hyacinths (Muscari armeniacum) and Gladiolus communis (a classy look wild Gladiolus) with good results. Among annuals, poppies (Papaver rhoeas), some daisies and larkspur (Consolida) are those that give greater satisfaction.
