Sowings instructions: Plant in full sun. Dislikes very wet soil. 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 it will be beneficial to mix in additional yellow rattle seeds, 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. Requires only one cut pre year, but two or three cuts in second or subsequent years will make it more tidy for your garden and help it to flower more, cut to 4 inches.In year 1, the first year of growth will be of the annual species, which grow taller than the growth of flora in the following years.
