More Details

A good mix to add colour to your lawn. Sow this in the autumn for early spring flowers. Mow it once the flowers have gone over and do not use weed killer in that area to encourage re-growth the following year.

This mix contains biennials and perennials including daisies, violas, forget-me-nots and primulas.

Sowing instructions

  • A day or two before sowing you will need to prepare your chosen area of lawn. Choose a time when the lawn is dry, and closely mow the grass.
  • Use a spring tine rake to remove and break up layers of dead matted grass or thatch (scarify). Then rake the area again so that seed will come into contact with soil. This will improve germination.
  • Spike the ground with a fork or hollow tine aerator up to a depth of 15cm (6in) to eliminate compaction if it is an area that is used a lot.
  • Ideally, sow the seed after the ground has been moistened by a good fall of rain. This will give your seed adequate moisture to start with. Measure out the area (one pack contains 6g seed plus buckwheat husks to cover 2.5m x 1m or equivalent area) and scatter the mixture evenly over the lawn area to ensure a good blend with existing grass.
  • Water generously with a fine spray. Keep the seedbed constantly moist throughout the autumn, then again in late spring and in early summer, to ensure the seedlings develop strong roots.
