UK Native Dry Soils

UK Native Dry Soils

UK Native Dry Soils- This mix is ideal for areas where water retention is low resulting in sandy or dry soils. These wildflowers and grasses have been selected for their tolerance to drought and adaptation for sandy soils. This mix will grow in most soil types, but we feel is best suited to dry areas. With 20 wildflowers and 6 grass species this mix offers a variety of colours, height and layers to any area where planted. The flowers range from whites through to reds and will flower May through to August. You can add Poppy or Cornflower for extra colour if required too. When sowing your seeds it is best to spread on to bare soil, do not add any soil improvements as this is not necessary for wildflowers. The sowing rates will depend on what mixture you are planting, 100% wildflower is sown at 2g/m2 and the 80:20 mix is spread at 4g/m2. These mixes can be added to existing grass land as long as there is no perennial rye grass present as this will over power any flowers. All of our native seeds are grown and produced by ourselves or our trusted suppliers across the UK ensuring we only supply responsibly sourced UK wildflower. See our advice centre for establishment and maintenance advice.
