    This easy to sow mini-meadow is the ideal way to achieve the perfect habitat for pollinating insects like bees, bugs and butterflies. The pack contains enough wild flower seeds to cover 3m2, a soil conditioner (Super Seaweed*) and Rootgrow mycorrhizal fungi to ensure they get off to the best possible start. A valuable tool to help teach children the importance of bio-diversity in gardening, this kit is is ideal for both the experienced and novice gardener, as once sown the meadow will require very little aftercare. Each mini-meadow will contain a mix of UK native wild flowers including cornflower, poppies, oxeye daisies, corn marigolds and many more.

    *Super Seaweed is derived from sustainably harvested kelp, which is manufactured using a unique cell burst process. This patented process ensures maximum retention of the growth stimulants found in kelp and contains a wide range of nutrients, vitamins and amino acids.

  • Garden care: Clear the area ready for sowing by removing weeds and other debris before sowing the seed in autumn or spring. Keep well watered and germination should commence within 28 days, although this will depend on the environmental conditions. Once the flowers have faded at the end of the year, mow the meadow at a high setting.

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.
