Native Meadows contains a broad range of the wildflowers once common in unimproved flower-rich lowland meadows. A general-purpose mix suited to a wide range of garden types, including clay, sand, chalk & limestone soils.
A collection of native wildflowers, found in traditionally managed meadows, woodland and waysides. Beneficial to many wildlife species, these mixtures may be used to enhance the biodiversity of wild and semi-wild areas, always being sensitive to the existing ecology. Though sometimes slow to establish, the results are worth the wait.
Growing Guide: Sow in spring or autumn, into existing grass that has been scarified, or sow onto bare soil, combined with a suitable grass seed mix. Prepare the ground for sowing in late summer - by cutting and/or grazing very hard, and create gaps with harrows or by raking/scarifying (aiming to create around 50% bare soil). Control any perennial weeds such as docks or thistles that colonise the area.
