British Native Wildflower seeds - Woodland & Shade Mix - 2g or 10g

£2.49

An excellent blend of wildflowers which will thrive in shady areas where nothing else seems to grow.   Perfect for woodland gardens, under trees and shrubs, and for brightening up those little corners that the sun never manages to reach.

Flowering from May to October, this mix contains 24 species of varying heights, mainly perennials with some annuals and biennials to create a permanent wildflower meadow.  All seed bred in the UK.

The mixture can be sown on bare soil or into existing grass at a rate of 2g/m2 on bare soil or 1g/m2 on grass.

     80% of the species in this mix have been awarded the RHS Plants for Pollinators mark.

GROWING GUIDE

Sow in autumn or early spring at a rate of 2g/m2 on bare soil or 1g/m2 on grass.

Prepare the ground
Bare soil:
• Clear all plant matter by digging and/or using glyphosate weedkiller
• Rake soil to a fine texture and firm down
• Leave for a few weeks and remove any new weed seedlings
Existing grass:
• Mow grass very short
• Remove perennial weeds
• Thin grass and create some bare patches/strips by raking or with weedkiller

Sowing
• Seed can be mixed with dry sand or compost to make it easier to sow evenly
• Roll or tread by foot to press seeds into the soil
• In very dry weather, water the area with a fine spray

Maintenance
• Remove any obvious weeds as they appear
• Keep area well watered in dry weather
• Bare soil: Clear area of plants in early autumn after they have shed seed, remove any weeds, rake and firm the soil. New plants will emerge in spring.
• Grassy meadows: Do not mow from spring to early autumn until plants have set seed. Mow as normal until early spring when new plants will emerge.
