Description

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 annual every year, a reseeding programme should be implemented to build up a seed bank. 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 in WFG6 in late May @ 5g/m2  you could supplement with WF10 @ 1g/m2 to ensure a floral display in Mid August  - 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.

Maintenance
Autumn or Spring Sown (First year)
August/September Cut back arising to 70mm and remove clippings ensuring that all seeds are shaken from senesced seed heads. Alternativiely leave simply leave plants to die back naturally
Maintenance thereafter
March - April In most situations sowings of 100% annuals will require resowing at 1g/m2 the first few Springs after the inital sowing. After a few years of resowing a seedbank will have built up and simple soil disturbance in early Spring will be sufficent to regenerate flowers every Spring.
August/September Cut back arising to 70mm and remove clippings ensuring that all seeds are shaken from senesced seed heads. Alternativiely leave simply leave plants to die back naturally
