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.
