Cornfield annuals, once a common feature of traditional farming areas, have largely disappeared from their former habitat. This mixture can be used to recreate those areas and give an outstanding display of colour in its first year, either sown on its own or to supplement a mixture of perennial species which are slower to establish.

To produce a display of cornfield annuals every year, a re-seeding programme should be implemented to build up a seed bank and after several years there will be enough seed to be regenerated by soil disturbance.

If sown from late March to late May then assuming adequate moisture and warmth this mix should flower after 60-80 days. Supplementing many of our standard grass and wildflower mixtures with annuals is a good way of providing first season colour to wildflower sowings that have to be done in March - June. I.e. when sowing WFG6 in late May at 5 g/m2  you could supplement with WF10 at 1g/m2 to ensure a floral display in mid-August to September, therefore providing some display where ordinarily the first notable flowering from the perennial species in WFG6 would be the following year once the mixture had estabilshed.
