More Details

There are two main things I want from my wild flower meadow – to look beautiful for months not weeks, with flowers coming out and going over in succession and to grow pollen-rich, insect friendly plants from early in the year to late.

I want my patch to be a regular and reliable food source for the birds and the bees. That's what you'll get with these beautiful selections of my favourite easy and reliable perennial wild flowers.

  • 4.5g (to cover an area of 3m x 1m, or equivalent area)

The mix starts to flower in spring with Cowslip, Birdsfoot Trefoil, Lady's Bedstraw, Rough Hawksbit, Red Clover, Oxeye Daisy, Yellow Rattle, Meadow Buttercup. Followed through the summer and into Autumn with Selfheal, Sorrel, Tufted Vetch, Knapweed, Toadflax, Musk Mallow and Ragged Robin.

I sowed this mix in March on an area that we had previously had our bonfire on last November. The result is just stunning, the insects adore it and I can't wait to have more bonfires! Planning on having more wildflower beds all over our back garden.

Very happy with this product..

This is my fifth year experimenting with growing wildflower meadows - I have tried quite a few varieties now - but THIS mix is pure artistic genius! The palette of colours is just breathtaking.. So delightful the way the blue tufted vetch climbs through the daisies and sorrel, punctuated by the charming purples of knapweed and selfheal, and softened by the pale yellows of lady's bedstraw, birds foot trefoil and toadflax..
I am so pleased with our front garden meadow that I have just bought the exact same mix to sow a meadow in the back garden.
All I would add is to remind other users to be patient - ours took over a year before it really flowered properly. Second time round I will definitely sow in the autumn as opposed to the spring, in order to give new roots longer to establish.
It was worth the wait! All is now out in full colour, wowing passers-by, and I get the sense that next year even more species will be out..
It is buzzing with bees and insects. Superb!
Thank you Sarah for your artistic genius, once again. Please never stop doing this mix.

Tremendous colours

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the BBC programme you did a couple of years ago about getting wild flower seeds planted in public areas. We have noticed a very large increase in areas covered in wild flowers, from roundabouts to islands between dual carriageways.

Many councils seemed to have taken up your idea, which is great to see. We ourselves we inspired by your programme and have planted 6 sq mtrs in our own small back garden.
Tremendous colours, and doing a great job for the pollinating bees and butterflies.
