I have a small garden with annuals and perennials planted and have spread wild flower
Seed on the rest. The quack is growing I am wondering if I should spray it or will the wild flowers grow anyway?

Welcome to the site!

Quack grass is a perennial weed, very difficult to eradicate.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Myself, I would work on eradicating the quack grass. If it means turning the soil and killing most of the wildflowers you planted, I would still do it. You need to get that under control and be continually vigilant if you want to grow anything long term.
