    Our Dual Purpose Wildflower 80% Grass mix, is a blend of native annual and perennial wildflower seeds and can be supplied with or without grass seed.

    Mix contains 80% Grass Seed and 20% Wildlflower Seeds

    The mix is ideal for use in areas where impact is required in the first growing season, the Cornfield Annual species including Poppy, Chamomile, Cornflower, Marigold and Corncockle will come through to give that burst of colour, while the slower-growing perennial species such as Oxeye Daisy, Lady’s Bedstraw, Knapweed and Salad Burnet are all establishing, ready to really spring forth from Year 2 onwards. The annuals will normally only flower during Year 1, but you may still get a few appearing in subsequent years, from self-dispersal.

    The species included in the recipe are excellent ‘do-ers’ and are generally successful in most soil types and scenarios, so if you do not know the exact constitution of your soil, this mix would be a great choice. If your selected environment has difficult elements including heavy shade or sitting water, we’d suggest thinking about one of our mixes which better suits your specific scenario.

    As with all wildflower areas, the best results come from well prepared areas and good maintenance for the developing sward, as and when necessary. One very important tip for Wildflower areas is to make sure that the sward is cut back after seed heads have dispersed in late-Summer or Autumn and always remove the cuttings.

    Wildflower Site Preparation

    The site should be weed free. Annual weeds should be controlled by mechanical means or by the use of contact based herbicide. Perennial weeds, for example docks thistle, nettles and couch grass can be dealt with using a translocated herbicide such as Round-Up. Cultivate to achieve a fine seed bed, sow seed mix and then roll to ensure firmness. The best results are obtained when there is good contact between the soil and the seeds.
