Wildflower Seeds - Basic Sowing Instructions

  • First you must prepare area to be sown
  • Do not sow directly into lawn, meadow or weedy soil
  • Apply weed killer. 2 or 3 applications may be necessary
  • Note: Please avoid chemical use in gardens as much as possible & follow organic practices to protect our wildlife
  • Wildflowers grow better on soils with a lower fertility. This allows them to out compete grass
  • When preparing area it's is best to NOT cultivate the area - as this will encourage further weed & grass germination
  • Sow seeds between March/April & August/September
  • Seeds will start to germinate 6 – 12 weeks after sowing
  • Meadow will start to flower 8 – 16 weeks after first sowing
  • Our seed mixes contains Chaff - this is to bulk up the mix & allow for an even application
  • When sowing: Sow 1 square metre at a time - walk at a fast pace tossing the seeds as you go
  • Take great care to ensure an even seed distribution
  • After sowing, rake seed into soil to cover them & prevent birds from eating them
  • Water in seeds after sowing After sowing it is important to remove any weeds that grow

Butterfly & Bees - Specific Sowing Instructions

  • Sowing rate: Approx. 5 grams per metre
  • This mixture includes chaff to bulk up mix & aid even distribution

Butterfly & Bees - Cutting Instructions

  • Year 1: Cut once at the end of year one. Remove the cuttings at this point
  • Year 2: If no grass is found growing in the meadow, then just cut again once, in October
  • If grass is strong, then cut the meadow back 3 times in the 2nd year. Cut to approx. 8 to 15cm in height
  • This will prevent your wildflowers from being smothered out by the grass
  • You can add yellow rattle to the meadow in year two (see gap creation)
  • Year 3: This year the colour in the wildflower meadow will be muted as the perennials still need to establish
  • Cut the same way as in year 2. If grass is strong, cut meadow 3 times. Cut in April, July & again in September
  • Year 4: From this point onwards, only cut the meadow once a year in Autumn

Butterfly & Bee Mix - Maintenance

  • Gap creation: Each year you should consider gap creation
  • This is basically exposing bare soil throughout the meadow and re-seeding these areas to encourage a more dense floral display
  • You can re-seed with seeds you collected from the previous year or buy more seeds
  • Yellow rattle is the best choice for gap creation as it aids meadow establishment
  • If grasses are taking over, then heavier clumps of grass should be spot weeded out
  • If the grass growth is slow then you will only need to cut the meadow once each year in August or September
  • Ideally wait for flower heads to die back to maximise the number of seeds harvested at time of cutting
