Sowing wild seed is the natural way to introduce diversity and colour to a site. This rich mixture is suitable for sowing onto thin lime-rich soils of low fertility and with a significant chalk or limestone content. Suggested sowing per m2 is 2-4g.
Each 2g packet features a mix of wonderful wildflowers and wild grass such as Yarrow, Knapweed, Wild Carrot, Field Scabious, Oxeye Daisy, Birdsfoot Trefoil, Wild Marjoram, Cowslip and Quaking Grass to name but a few!
Seed is best sown in the autumn or spring but can be sown at other times of the year if there is sufficient warmth and moisture. The seed must be surface sown and can be scattered by hand. To get an even distribution and avoid running out divide the seed into two or more parts and sow in overlapping sections. Do not incorporate or cover the seed, but firm in with a roll, or by treading, to give good soil/seed contact.
Hand measured into glassine bags made from 100% PEFC pine cellulose and wrapped in an outer sleeve made from eco kraft 100% post-consumer recycled paper, all of which is biodegradable and recyclable.
