      We are often asked by tradesmen and estate managers if there is a way to establish Parkland Wildflowers or a meadow type mixture, along with some wildflower species, into large landscaped areas at a relatively low cost? The simple answer is to have a product containing a reduced percentage of the (expensive) native wildflower seeds but allow more time for the area to become fully established.
      We therefore offer bulk 20.00 kg bags of Parkland Wildflower Meadow containing 5% wildflower seeds (by weight) to keep the price per kg down in line with a lower budget.
      Parkland Wildflower Meadow will perform best on poorer quality soils and is an ideal economy wildflower meadow seeds mixture for establishing on the periphery of new buildings, along railway embankments, on reinstated and/or reclaimed sites or even on difficult to maintain areas along roads, green lanes and waterways etc.

      The planted area may be left as a wild and natural habitat, cut by mechanical mowers or occasionally grazed by sheep or deer.

      Do not apply fertiliser as encouraging rapid grass growth may be detrimental to the wildflower plants.

      SOWING INSTRUCTIONS

      • Produce a firm, weed free seedbed clear of large stones and any other debris.
      • Rake or harrow over the surface to create a thin layer of fine soil (tilth) approximately 10-20mm deep.
      • Split the total quantity of amenity grass seed to be applied into two equal amounts.
      • Apply the first half over the entire area either by hand or by using a broadcast spreader.
      • Gently work most of the applied seeds into the tilth with a firm rake or harrow.
      • Apply the remaining seed in the same way and again, rake or harrow most of them into the tilth.
      • Finally, use a light to medium weight flat roller to squeeze the seeds and tilth down into the seedbed. This method ensures the wildflower and grass seeds are evenly spread, set at different depths and in good contact with the soil. All of which helps to anchor the seeds in position so as not to float away during heavy or persistant rainfall and to retain the correct moisture level for quicker germination.
      • Grass seed may also be surface sown however, germination may be uneven and significantly slower particularly during periods of prolonged sunny, dry or windy weather even with regular irrigation.
