The annuals will dazzle in the first year and initial stages, then as they settle in, the perennials will take centre stage.
Have some fun transforming a forgotten area of the garden with an abundance of colours and textures, that will rage on through late spring to autumn.
These economical seed mixes are perfect for attracting beneficial pollinators to the garden and for allowing home gardeners glow with pride. Suitable for all ages and abilities, the stunning and hardy varieties will bring you up to eight months of sensational blooms.
Wild Meadow flowers are sensational in combination with spring bulbs where the seeds are emerging late spring/summer as the bulbs begin to fade. Their blooms and foliage will work to hide the fading bulbs and also shade them through the summer so they are a symbiotic naturalising team.
It is easy to create a breathtaking display pretty much anywhere. You could try sowing these seeds in a field, small lawn, pot/container, verge, among your existing garden plants, a forgotten corner of the yard, wherever you need more flowers – which is pretty much everywhere as far as we are concerned! It is not just gardeners and florists that love these flowers, the bees, butterflies and myriad of beneficial insects also adore them. It is great to maintain the diversity for our bee and beneficial insect populations. Water well in the first few weeks as they establish.
