Wildflower Seeds from Sow Seeds Ltd
The flowers in the Bees & Butterfly Wildflower Meadow seed mix will help you create a flower-rich grassland with a particular emphasis on species which are known to be important as sources of nectar for bees, butterflies and other insects.
If you ever wondered what beekeepers sow to attract the bees then look no further!
This mix 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.
Contains varieties that are identified by the RHS as beneficial for the pollinators in your garden.
If you are sowing on to established grass it is advisable to add 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]
Bees & Butterfly Wildflower Seed Mix Information
|When to Sow:||Best results will be obtained once soil temperatures are at least 10 degrees, therefore April to September is the best time|
|Soil / Site Conditions:||
Full sun, partial sun
|How to Sow:||
Bee & Butterfly 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:||4.5 grams per square metre.|
