Description

This mixture includes a wide range of perennials to suit a variety of soil types and localities in urban and suburban settings.

Once established the broad range of wildflower species and ornamental varieties ensures a highly floral display will return year after year. The array of wildflower species and ornamentals maximises the flowering period and abundance of flowers to the benefit of bees and pollinators.

As this mixture doesn't contain any grass, establishment 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 perennial UK native wildflowers and selected non-non native species including Musk Mallow, Foxglove, Ragged Robin, Lady's Bedstraw and Birdsfoot Trefoil.

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.
