Description

This mixture is suited to urban and surburban settings, such as roundabouts, verges at retail parks and similar areas when a highly floral area without grasses is required.

The annual species produces an initial display of colour in the first year and the perennial species persist thereafter. The broader range of wildflowers and selected non-native species maximises the flowering period and abundance of flowers to the benefit of bees and pollinators. As this mixture doesn't contain any grass, estabilshment can be slower and bare areas of soil are left for longer while the wildflower plants estabilsh; it is therefore crucial that the seed bed is clean of weed species otherwise they can quickly outcompete the emerging wildflower plants.

A mix of annual and perennial UK native wildflowers and selected non-native species including Corncockle, Oxeye Sunflower, Coreopsis, Corn Poppy and Phacelia.

Maintenance

1st cut in mid-September - 1st October and collect the arisings

Cutting height 70-100mm

Cut down to 70-100mm from early September. Remove arisings. If practical consider leaving up to one fifth of the area uncut, the remaining dead stalks will provide a nesting and hibernation site and egg laying habitat for invertebrates over the winter. Alternate this area each winter.

If possible, and with the obvious exception of areas you are leaving uncut, lightly mow the sward down to 70-100mm as required throughout the winter months until March and collect the clippings.
