Description

This mixture is suited to areas such as road verges, inner city derelict sites and wasteland areas when a wildflower area without grasses is required. The annual species produces an initial display of colour in the first year and the perennial species persist therafter. Because 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.
