Damp soil or clay soils can be a problem to some native fauna as excessive moisture can be detrimental to healthy and sustained root growth. The wildflowers in this mixture are known to freely inhabit these conditions and are very suited to damp or heavier soil types. This mixture of native damp soil wildflowers do extremely well around ponds, aside water courses or on any slow draining soils.

Add native Economy Wildflower Seeds (We recommend 5 to 20% total) to any quantity of Basic or Diverse Meadow Seeds

Over seeding into existing grassland or meadows can be successful providing the sward is sparce, slow growing or non competitive. Any aggresive or fast growing grass species will simply smother new seedlings before they have a chance to become established, particularly in the spring when grassland and meadows are heading (flowering and producing seeds).

Most wildflower species take 6-12 months to establish before flowering so we have included native cornfield annuals to ensure good first year colour.

Never apply fertiliser to a wildflower area.

SOWING INSTRUCTIONS

  • Rake or harrow the area hard to break up the surface and expose the soil.
  • Split the total quantity of wildflower seeds to be applied into two equal amounts. If necessary, add dry sharp sand or sterile topsoil to bulk the mixture up a little.
  • Apply the first half over the entire area either by hand or by using a broadcast spreader.
  • Apply the remaining seed in the same way.
  • Finally, lightly tread over or roll the surface to squeeze the seeds and tilth down into the seedbed. This ensures the seeds are evenly spread and in good contact with the soil which not only helps to anchor the seeds into position (so as not to float away during heavy or persistant rainfall) but to also maintain the correct moisture level for more reliable germination.
  • Wildflower meadow seeds 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.
