    This grew easily on clay soil with plenty grit/subsoil and sand. It looks just like the picture though less dense. We sewed the seeds in Autumn, enjoying growth then and in the following Spring. Different flowers keep popping up throughout the summer. Lovely.

    Can I sow these seeds into a lawn,or do I need to remove the grass in the area I want the wild flowers?

    Harley stu

    Hello, These need to be sown in a cleared area, so are unlikely to germinate if sprinkled on a lawn.

    Helen

    What is the best time to sow these seeds for flowering in 2016? Thanks

    Froot

    Hello, It is a little late for autumn sowing now, so your best option would be to sow the seed in spring, and as this collection contains a mixture of annuals and perennials, you should get some flowers next year.

    Helen

    Hi, will these seeds flower over autumn and winter if sown late September?

    Phill

    Hello, These seeds should be sown in autumn or spring, and then they will start to flower the following summer.

    Helen

    Will the meadow grow in partial shade?

    james

    Hello there No, this wild flower seed mix needs a sunny site. We do have a 'Wildflowers for a shady meadow' plug plant collection.I have attached the link below. http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/wildflowers-for-a-shady-meadow/classid.2000004161/ Hope this helps.

    Once panted will the wildflower meadow come back year after year or are the seeds just annuals? Many thanks

    Looy

    Hello, As a general rule, many of the native wildflowers are annual plants, however if the conditions are right, they self-seed so new plants will come back year after year.

    There’s nothing like a lawn to bring the various elements of a garden together as it’s easy on the eye and helps highlight other more ornamental features. Best of all, it adds much needed space to the garden and provides evergreen continuity too. But a la
