Aftercare

I’ve sown my wildflower seed in April / May (spring)

In August / September of the first year you have sown your wildflower seed, cut your wildflower sward to 7cm after flowering – you can do this by putting your mower on a high setting. In most cases remove clippings* (Note: a late spring sowing will result in late flowering). Do not be tempted fertilise or add top soil to this area – wildflowers prefer poor soil conditions, and this is how they should stay. Continue this same process, year after year. *If you have annual wildflowers in your mix and you do not wish them to return the following year, remove the clippings. If you want your wildflowers to return the following year - let them go to seed head, and manually assist their self-seeding by firming the seed heads into the soil. By doing this, your annuals will return the following year.

I’ve sown my wildflower seed in September / October (autumn)

In March / April of the first year of sowing your wildflower seed, make sure there is sufficient material to mow – your wildflowers / grasses should be at a height of 10cm. If your wildflowers are at this height, mow to 7cm no later than mid-April, as this will delay their blooming process. In August / September, after they have bloomed, cut your wildflower meadow again to 7cm, remove all clippings unless you want your annuals to return. If you wish for your annual wildflowers to make a reappearance the following spring, follow the process above by letting the seed heads drop into the soil, and give them a helping hand by firming them into the soil.

Hi, i have just bought some of this and plan to sow this very soon, once established and fully blooming, can i cut it back and it will regrow? thanks

Which mix would thrive best on the south side (no shade) of a tall cedar of Lebanon. The roots are shallow and existing grass is poor and permanently covered in cedar needles. The only way I have been able to sow grass seed with some success on the shadier side is to scarify robustly, sow seed, then cover with enviromesh until seeds have germinated. Will this work and which mix would be best for poor soil and full sun?

I’ve completely removed all weeds, grass and the top soil, do I need to some grass seed to the mix as I sow?
