Planting pressed flowers


After pressing/ drying wildflowers is it possible to plant them? To encourage wildlife in my back garden

Many thanks,

Not unless they were seed heads.... then the seeds might grow.

One year, my kids and I made home made valentine cards out of wildflower seeds sandwiched between two layers of crepe paper and also by incorporating seeds in the pulp for home made paper. The cards were meant to be planted in the recipients garden.

Rosatriee keep coming back here you will learn a lot from the people here.
I like it Applestar.
The things I do are an evolution and I am always learning. My way is not the only way of doing things, and I may and will change the way I do things as I learn better ways. So any advice that I give is in that spirit.
