    A collection of five different species of native wildflower once a common sight in cornfields. This summer-flowering mixture is ideal for providing a splash of colour in sunny areas of the garden with poor, well-drained soil. By purchasing Landlife seeds you are helping to protect existing wildflower areas and develop potential new sites where wildflowers may grow.

    One packet of seeds will cover approximately 2 square metres.

  • Garden care: When sowing seeds do not use a fertiliser since wildflowers prefer poor soils. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. In autumn cut the faded flowerheads down to the ground and compost the dead stems

  • Sow: March - May or September - October

  • Flowering: August - September or May - July

  • Approximate quantity: 5500 seeds.
