UK Native Wet Soils

UK Native Wet Soils

UK Native Wet Soils – This mix is suitable for damp or wet soils found in low lying areas that are prone to flooding. It can also work extremely well around pond edges; adding colour and interest whilst attracting dragonflies. These wild flowers and grasses have been specifically selected for their tolerance of water logged soils. With 17 wildflowers and 7 grass species this mix offers a variety of colours, height and layers to any area where planted. The flowers range from yellows through to pinks and will flower May through to August. 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.
