UK Native General Purpose Mix

UK Native General Purpose Mix

UK Native General Purpose – This general purpose mixture can be used in most situations and soil types whether it is a small area in the garden, large area in a park or on a road verge. In the first year the annuals and Oxeye Daisy will germinate quickly and will therefore flower until September. With 18 wildflowers and 4 grass species this mix offers a variety of colours, height and layers to any area where planted. The flowers range from purples through to whites and will flower May through to August the following year after they are established. However Poppies add a pop of colour in the first year. 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.
