Transform your next outdoor project into a thing of beauty by choosing wildflower seeds grown and harvested right here in Wales. 




Establishment - 

Sow in Spring or late Summer/early Autumn.

Prepare the area you want to seed by weeding thoroughly to remove all vegetation.

Do not add compost or any other additive to improve the soil quality. 

Mark areas to be seeded into square metres with canes to help sow correct quantities. 

It can be helpful to bulk out seeds with sand.

Scatter seeds on the surface at a rate of 4g per square metre for meadow mixes and 1-2g for wildflowers only. 

Lightly roll or tread in to ensure good contact with the soil.

Do not cover seeds with soil. 


Maintenance -

Many perennials are slow to establish and do not flower in the first year. Don't worry. 

Cut every month or so to 2cm, avoiding the period from the beginning of March until the end of August. This initially controls annual weeds and faster growing grasses and will help your meadow area develop. 

Always remove cuttings to reduce soil fertility.

Weed out aggressive perennial weeds like dock, thistles and nettles.
