Description

Combines all wild flora species found in WF3 with 80% ornamental grasses. This mixture is suitable for creating a grassland on a wide range of soil types. The absence of annuals lends this mixture to being mown more regularly than those containing annuals. If mown regularly the perennial species will persist as vegetative plants and some will spread laterally but of course they won't flower until left for a period of up to 10-12 weeks during the growing season. A great habitat for invertebrates which in turn provide food for birds and mammals. If possible when cutting in late summer an area of up to one third should be left uncut until the following spring for overwintering invertebrates. This area should be alternated each year.
