Wildflower Seeds from Sow Seeds Ltd
The flowers in the Hedgerow/Light Shade Wildflower Meadow seed mix are the perfect solution if you're not sure what to do with a shady area or a piece of ground near shrubs or trees. The Hedgerow/Light Shade Wildflower Meadow seed mix contains 17 varieties that are suitable and can thrive in light shaded areas. Once established, from year 2 onwards, the aim is to have different species of height, colour, and appearance from May through to August.
This mixture contains 100% wildflower seed, with NO GRASSES, and is ideal for those situations where you wish to sow on established grass. Likewise, it can be sown straight on to a weed-free seedbed. This mix is 100% native UK origin.
If you are sowing on to established grass it is prudent to add additional Yellow Rattle as this will help to ensure that the existing grass doesn't start to dominate the wildflowers.
You can buy Yellow Rattle in a variety of pack sizes to suit the sowing area that you require [HERE]
Hedgerow/Light Shade Wildflower Seed Mix Information
|When to Sow:||Throughout the year (bar the depths of winter) but best results from August to October then March to April.|
|Soil / Site Conditions:||
Part shade and shade
|How to Sow:||
Hedgerow/Light Shade Wildflower Seed Mix can be used to overseed into existing grass, provided the sward comprises only fine leaved grasses and does not include ryegrass, agricultural species or weeds.
Cultivate the ground to a depth of 10cm to relieve compaction and create a fine level tilth, free from obstructions (to allow for mowing at a later stage). Finish the seedbed by treading or lightly rolling the area, so that it is firm enough to stand on without leaving indentations.
Carefully water during dry weather, and keep on top of removing weeds until the meadow begins to establish.
Be aware that it can take several years for the meadow to become established, patience is required, just as in nature!
|Sow Rate:||2 grams per square metre.|
