SKU: GSS-WFBA Category:

A simple yet visually pleasing native Economy Wildflower Seeds mixture of the more common native species for overseeding into meadows, large gardens and environmentally sensitive landscapes.
For the best results, broadcast these seeds over harrowed (or raked) thin, sparcely populated grassland before rolling (or treading) the surface firm again.
Contains Annual Wildflower Seed and Perennial Wildflower Seed

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).

Broadleaf and grass weeds should be controlled before sowing takes place and soil fertility should be reasonably low.
Most wildflower species take 6-12 months to fully establish before flowering so we have included some native annual wildflowers for a little first year colour.

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.
