Sowings instructions: for best results remove all grass and weeds and sow on bare soil.. Alternatively mow grass on shortest setting and rake out as much as possible exposing bare soil. If sown into grass you will need to add yellow rattle seeds into mix, which suppress the grass growth. Sow seeds in 2 direction for even distribution. Rake lightly and roll or walk over seeds to achieve better contact with soil. If sowing in spring water regularly in first 2-3 weeks during dry weather until you see successful germination.

 

Maintanance: after flowering let the flowers self seed and cut meadow in autumn. Remove all vegetation to avoid enriching te soil, wildflowers thrive in poor soils.
