Containing twenty four nectar rich UK Native wildflower species which create a stunning display while creating habitats and food for a wide range of bees, butterflies and other pollinators.

For best results sow into bare soil after clearing all existing plants and weeds from the area. Cultivate the ground to a depth of 10cm to relieve compaction and create a fine level tilth, free from obstructions (to allow for mowing at a later stage). Finish the seedbed by treading or lightly rolling the area, so that it is firm enough to stand on without leaving indentations. Where weeds have been prevalent, allow a flush of weeds to germinate and remove these before sowing. In areas of high fertility, it may be necessary to remove the topsoil and sow into the subsoil. High nutrient soils encourage weeds and fast growing grasses which may outcompete the wildflowers in this mixture. Our Flower Seed Mix can be used to over seed into existing grassland, provided the sward comprises only fine leaved grasses and does not include ryegrass, agricultural species or weeds. Cut the grass as short as possible and thoroughly scarify or rake the ground to remove any thatch, moss and other debris from the area. Sowing BSA Annual Flower Seed Mix can be sown in March or November. Spring and autumn provide ideal conditions as moisture and warmth are in good supply. If over seeding into grass, it is best to sow during autumn when grass growth has slowed down.
