The native wildflower seeds in this mixture were harvested from heavy clay soil across the Weald of Kent which comprises a low-lying clay vale.
The species in this mix include common knapweed, ribwort plantain, meadow buttercup, birdsfoot trefoil, cowslip, common sorrel, tufted vetch, yellow rattle, selfheal, yarrow, lady’s bedstraw, wild carrot, and oxeye daisy.
Contents may change with each new harvest and depending on availability.
To establish colour early in the season: we suggest sowing this mix in the autumn alongside our Cornfield Colours Annual Wildflower Mixture or our Bees & Butterflies Pollinator Wildflower Mix which will help to establish a vibrant display at the start of summer.
Sowing rate: We recommend sowing our 100% native clay soils wildflower seed mixtures 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.
