How to Sow:

Sowing of Wildflower seeds can take place through most of the year (bar the depths of winter). But generally, the most successful time is August to October (following natures natural cycle) and then by March to April.

The site should be weed-free. Cultivate by lightly raking to achieve a fine seed bed, avoid overly cultivating the top soil as this will disturb the weed-bank and stimulate weed growth. Broadcast the seed at a rate of 2gm per sq metre. The seed can be mixed with sharp sand to ensure a more even spread, and then roll to ensure firmness. The best results are obtained when there is good contact between the soil and the seeds. 

Carefully water during dry weather, and keep on top of removing weeds until the meadow begins to establish. 


Germination of wildflower seeds can be erratic and some species require vernalisation before germination in spring of the following year, e.g. a period of prolonged cold temperatures.

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.
