Cultivation advice Wildflower Meadow DE-LUX Mix – 50 Varieties

(Attached images are of a generic wildflower meadow and will vary by season and conditions)

  • Wildflowers will always perform best on ground that is not highly fertile as this will allow them to compete with background weeds.
  • The correct ground preparation is essential for success. For a new display / sowing the seed bed needs to be cleared of all weeds by repeated cultivation or a herbicide and left for at least 2 weeks for newly exposed seeds to germination before repeating the process at least twice.
  • The ground should be  a medium tilth for sowing and tread down or rolled to provide a firm surface.
  • Sowing is ideally undertaken when the soil is warm and moist in early autumn or spring ( Apr ? Jun).
  • The seed must be surface sown evenly and sparingly (1-2 gram per square meter), avoid the temptation to over-sow. Seed can be mixed with fine white dry sand which ensures a better distribution and allows you to see where it has been scattered.
  • Do not cover the seed but firm in with a roller or by treading to ensure good soil contact
  • Once you have sown the mixture, it is very important to manage the growth for the ? first year, which includes weeding any aggressive species that appear.
  • If sowing amongst established grass, autumn will be best, first cutting back close to the ground and scarifying to expose base soil.
  • Cut the sward when the grass gets established and keep it down to help the ­new seeds to germinate.
  • If sowing in the spring, again keep the grass low for the first growing season.
  • Whenever you cut, it is vital to remove all the material after allowing any seeds to spread to ensure nutrients are not added back to the soil.
