Cornfield Annuals Mixed
This easy mixture contains 5 annual species that could be found in most uncultivated soils and disturbed areas. They are ideal for sowing in a situation where instant colour is required. 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 and the wild flowers may vary depending upon species. Some may take only a few weeks, while others can take several months.
