Product Description

Product Description

Want to bring wildlife back to your local area? This wildflower mix full of RHS Plants for Pollinators annuals and perennials creates a long-lasting habitat for bees and pollinators on roadside verges and roundabouts. Grass within the mix creates a nursery for the wildflowers to maintain a weed-free bed and develop a habitat for wildlife for years to come. Cornfield annuals provide an instant pop of colour to tired and unkept verges and roundabouts, whilst perennials once established will not only reappear year after year but become familiar favourites to locals. These wildflowers help to create mini meadows that when managed and maintained will save costs on mowing and remove the need for any chemical fertilisers. Containing 100% UK native wildflowers, this mix helps councils and local authorities to reclaim their road verges and roundabouts and provide nature with a local home.

For our comprehensive guide on managing wildflowers on roadside verges and roundabouts, email expert@thegrasspeople.com. Please note, this mix is for councils and/or authorities who have permission to sow wildflower mixes in these areas.
