Bring traditional wildflowers to your garden and countryside with our easy to grow conservation-grade seed mix.
The species in this mix are easy to grow and suitable for most soil types with the exception of extremely dry soils. The inclusion of 40% annual flowers will show colour from the first year, while the biennials and perennials will carry the colour through the following years. The flowering period is from May to July, and on into September.
These wildflowers species are very versatile and provide intense, vibrant colours in swathes and patches. For impact, try cutting this mix short at the front, medium height in the centre and leave tall at the back. The species will provide strong colour swathes at three different height levels with shorter species more prominent at the front, and taller species at the back. Enjoy as our native bee species and butterflies thrive amongst these flowers.
