Description

A mixture that is perfect for pollinators. This blend of ornamental, annual and perennial species has been specifically selected to supply pollen-bearing flowers to benefit bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects for the longest period possible from spring through to early autumn.

On heavy clay soils extra care should be taken to protect emerging plants from slugs. This mixture is perfect for sowing as a food source close to habitat mixtures such as WFG2 Flowering Meadow. 

A mix of native and non-native annual flowers including Corn Poppy, Evening Primrose and Phacelia.

Sowing Depth 10mm

Maintenance

1st cut 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.
