PREPARATION and ESTABLISHMENT

  • Remove all existing weeds
  • Wildflowers prefer a poor soil with low nutrients, so remember not to apply fertiliser.
  • Sow during March & April or in September, depending on soil conditions.
  • Sow seed at 5g/m2, it should not be necessary to rake the seed over as the light helps germination on many species.
  • To assist sowing, it’s advisable to mix the wildflower seed in the bag prior to sowing, small seed will always travel to the bottom of the bag.). This will help distribute the seed mixture.
  • The nurse grasses will appear within 7 – 10 days; the wildflowers may vary depending upon species – some may take only a few weeks, while others can take several months.
  • Cornfield Annuals flower the same year if sown during the spring or the previous autumn.
  • Perennial wildflowers will establish during the first year of sowing and flower in year two.
