Buy Butterfly seed collection butterfly collection: Summer-flowering wildflowers

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, preferably poor soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The summer flowering wildflowers that make up this collection predominantly produce blue or mauve flowers. Annual plants, they may produce another crop of flowers in the following year if they are not cut back until they have scattered their seed.

    One packet containing 2 grams of seeds will cover approximately 2 square meters.

    The collection contains:
    Cornflower - Centaurea cyanus
    Field Scabious - Knautia arvensis
    Greater Knapweed - Centaurea scabiosa
    Musk Mallow - Malva moschata
    Ox-Eye Daisy - Leucanthemum vulgare
    Yarrow - Achillea millefolium
    Red Campion - ?Silene dioica

  • Garden care: Rake the soil well to form a fine tilth and then sow seeds, scattering them evenly before raking them in and firming down. Wildflowers prefer poor soils so avoid using fertilisers. Keep them well watered initially and remove any weeds if they appear. To encourage butterflies to breed, try to keep a small patch of stinging nettles nearby as these will provide food for the young caterpillars.

  • Sow: March - October

  • Flowering: July - August
