Description

A mixture of native wildflower species and grasses that tolerate heaving clay soils, provides floral interest from late April to September. 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. Due to the nature of clay soils, extra attention is required in terms of seed bed preparation to encourage good establishment. Cultivate when soil moisture allows breakdown of the soil aggregates into a medium tilth.
