|Hi, I have trees at the bottom of my garden and was looking to brighten up the area underneath. I was wondering if wildflower seeds would grow in such a shaded area? TIA

are the trees deciduous?
likely there are plenty of flowers that would grow and provide a show of colour, but depending on the amount of shade cast by the trees.... you might not be able to depend on seed mixes.
there are a number of beautiful spring ephemerals, but they are usually established by planting bulbs.
but... if there's enough light, and you are able to loosen the soil... then... sure, we could suggest some seed.

|I think areas under trees are well suited to spring/fall ephemerals. Columbine, native wood poppy are a couple that do well for me.
i'm pretty OK today, how are you? ;^)
