Let’s Bee Friends blend consists of meadow grass, annual wildflowers, and perennial wildflowers. The inclusion of meadow grass serves multiple purposes: it acts as a natural weed suppressor, while also creating a welcoming environment for wildlife. Meadow grass thrives when temperatures reach 10 degrees Celsius and above, making it an excellent choice for various climates.
Following the growth of meadow grass, the annual wildflowers will emerge and grace your garden with their vibrant blooms approximately 60-80 days after being sown. These colourful blossoms will add a touch of beauty to your landscape.
For the long-term beauty of your garden, the perennial wildflowers will take their time to establish. Patience is key, as they will require up to 12 months before displaying their full splendour. Once they bloom, their enduring presence will bring continuous delight year after year.
A mix of annuals, perennials and grasses:
- Let’s Bee Friends seed mix can be planted during the spring months of March and April, as well as in the late summer/early autumn seasons (September and October). Avoid sowing during winter months as the ground is frosty or frozen.
- Prepare the soil. Select an area of unused land, such as a vacant space within a flower bed or a freshly prepared plot, and manually eliminate any weeds present. Afterwards, use a rake to level the surface, ensuring it is smooth and primed for seeding. Fertilising the area is unnecessary.
- Scatter the seeds as evenly as possible across the entire designated area. Cover the seeds with soil.
- Carefully moisten the seeds by lightly spraying them with water.
