This is a unique wild flower mixture containing 100% native wild flowers, designed for impact in the first year after sowing, as well as longevity. The first year colour is from 30% of bold cornfield annuals, followed by 70% of perennials which begin flowering in the second year. Wild flowers prefer poor soil with low nutrients.
Before sowing remove all existing weeds from the area to be sown and prepare soil to a fine tilth. Sowing times can be any time during the period mid-March to the end of October, the ideal time being autumn, but avoid the hot summer months. Sow seed mix at 5g/metre squared, it should not be necessary to rake the seed over as the light helps germination on many species. The nurse grasses within the mixture will appear within 7-10 days. The wild flowers may vary depending upon species, some may take only a few weeks, while others can take several months.
