    I have a fairly decent sizes lawn and I would like to make wild flower borders around the edges of the lawn. I'm thinking these borders would be a couple of meters wide.

    How do I prep the ground for this? I assume I can't sow the wild flower seed onto the grass? Do I need to rotovate the area? Am I too late into the year to do this?

      I'm just a novice but IMHO no prep needed..you would just need a reasonably fine tilth to sow wild flowers and the poorer the ground the better...not a good idea to try to sow seed into a lawn as the grass would compete too much.I think you may get away with sowing wild flower seeds now..but hang on whilst someone who really knows what their talking about comes along.:dbgrtmb:
