A soft toned floral ground cover, perfectly suited for planting on its own or around shrubs and rose bushes. It prevents soil erosion, and is a great alternative to plastic or canvas sheeting to control weeds. Its fragrant blooms will attract large numbers of beneficial insects to provide natural aphid control.
A colourful collection of cottage garden favourites, chosen for their value to wildlife and combined to create drifts of meadowy blooms. Successive flowering over several months will provide a continuous food source for pollinators. Sow directly onto prepared soil. Perfect for wildlife gardens, community spaces and urban ecology.
