Low Growing Garden Wildflower Seed Mixture

£4.00£248.00

Our low growing garden wildflower mix contains a blend of vibrant native wildflowers which commonly grow between 0.3m and 1.2m in height. Perfect for bringing colour to garden borders and interest to areas of lawn, this native wildflower mix creates productive meadow habitats in harmony with cottage garden design.

Can I scatter garden wildflowers on grass to create a flowering lawn? No. Wildflowers will not compete with well-established or vigourous grass. Do not scatter wildflower seeds on your lawn.

How can I use this mix to create a wildflower lawn? If establishing a new area of wildflower lawn, you must first sow yellow rattle, which is semi-parasitic, to push back the grass and create space for the young wildflower plants to establish. To do this you must first cut the grass as short as possible and scraify the area to expose soil and create a seedbed.

This mix contains 100% native wildflower seed.

If the seed weight you require is not listed below please send us an enquiry.

The native wildflower species in this mixture are well suited for sowing in low flowering lawns and garden borders. Designed with nature and the environment in mind, this garden wildflower mix is low maintenance, gives a spread of flowering times throughout the season, attracts pollinators, and supports habitat creation for insects, birds, and small mammals.

The species in this low growing garden wildflower mix include meadow buttercup, birdsfoot trefoil, cowslip, tufted vetch, yellow rattle, selfheal, lady’s bedstraw, oxeye daisy, red clover, wild white clover, common poppy, wild marjoram, red campion, and yellow rattle.

Contents may change with each new harvest and depending on availability.

What rate should I sow yellow rattle to control grass? To prepare a seedbed for your garden wildflower seeds sow yellow rattle at a rate of 0.5g/sqm and ensure the seed makes contact with the soil by trampling the ground or running the rear roller of a lawn mower over the sown area. Do this in the autumn and assess the condition of the grass the following summer once the yellow rattle is in flower. When the grass has weakened and there are bare patches of soil you can then sow your low growing garden wildflower seeds.

To establish a vibrant wildflower display early in the season: as most of the species in this mix are perennial, and take a little longer to establish, we suggest sowing this mix in the autumn alongside our Cornfield Colours Annual Wildflower Mixture which will help to establish a vibrant display at the start of summer.

Sowing rate: We recommend sowing our low flowering garden wildflower mix at a rate of 2 grams per square metre. For more densely populated growth this can be increased to 4 grams per square metre. To encourage even distribution when scattering, wildflower seeds can be mixed with dry sand, sawdust, or flour at a weight ratio of 1:4 (seed to spreader).

When to sow:  Ideally sown in autumn, however for germination mid-season it can be sown when the ground temperature is above 12 degrees and the conditions are warm and wet. Ensure that the seeds are sitting just below the surface of the soil. Do not drill. Take a look at these tips for successful wildflower seed germination.
