WF1 Flowering Meadow

A mixture of annual and perennial flowers to create stunning floral areas with a long flowering period.

Product Options:


Description carrat-down

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.

Usage Guide carrat-down

Copy Usage Guide
Sowing Rate 1-5 g/m2
Sowing Time March - October
Sowing Depth 10 mm
Sowing Instructions Create a fine friable seedbed down to 150 mm in depth. Carry out two equal sowings at right angles to each other and diagonally to main axis. Broadcast manually or use seed drill, rake level and roll. Ensure good seed to soil contact.

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

Cutting height 70 -100 mm

Cut down to 70 -100 mm 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 -100 mm as required throughout the winter months until March and collect the clippings.

Q & A carrat-down

Product Questions

Are there specific soil requirement for WF1 seed mix?
Question by: Tianyu on 3 Sept 2019, 11:04
The soil should be clean and free of weeds, and not highly fertile - Sub soil is preferable with a PH of between 5 and 7.5.
Ideally not heavy clay or sandy - Loamy soil is the most suitable.
