Wild Flower Butterfly & Bee Seed Mix Native Flowering Easy Maintenance Garden

  • Butterfly & Bee Seed Mix

    Spend this summer relaxing and enjoying your Wild flower Butterfly & Bee Seed Mix.
    A fabulous, scented and colourful blend of perennial wild flowers and grasses that doesn't need mowing every week.
    Spend warm afternoons listening to busy bees, hover flies and colourful butterflies going about their business while you chill out.
    Hopefully the sound of your neighbours wrestling with lawn mowers and strimmers wont drown out the bliss.
    Preparation is easy. Poor soil is preferred. Lightly rake over the plot and scatter the seeds. Protect from the birds and keep wet during dry spells. Sow April/May or August/September for best results.
    Cut once a year in October. Allow the cut material to lie for a day or two to allow seeds to drop. Then remove all cut material from the site. This prevents too many nutrients returning to the soil.
    Wilderness Tamed recommend using a scythe. We run courses and SABI the Scythe Association of Britain & Ireland can get you in touch with your local instructor and supplier.
     
    Pro Tip
     
    Plant native bulbs in Autumn before sowing the seeds. This will give an early spring display and extend the season. Our native mix of Autumn bulbs will be available closer to September.
