Shade Loving wildflower mix boasts a delightful combination of meadow grass, annual wildflowers, and perennial wildflowers. The presence of meadow grass in this blend serves a dual purpose: not only does it prevent the invasion of pesky weeds, but it also creates a welcoming habitat for wildlife. The meadow grass will begin to flourish once temperatures reach 10 degrees Celsius and above. Subsequently, the annual wildflowers will grace the landscape, blooming approximately 60-80 days after sowing. Patience is key with the perennial wildflowers, as they may take up to 12 months to reveal their splendid blossoms.
A mix of annuals, perennials and grasses:
Hedge Parsley (Upright)
Square Stemmed St. Johns Wort
Forget Me Not
Slender Creeping Red Fescue
Strong Creeping Red Fescue
Wood Meadow Grass
- Shade Loving 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.
