CORNFIELD ANNUALS WILDFLOWER MIX

This gorgeously bright native wildflower mix is made up of species traditionally found in cornfields.100% wildflowers, no grasses.

This wildflower mix is perfect if you're looking for a big, bright and cheerful display of glorious primary colours that will bloom relatively quickly. Bees and other pollinating insects will enjoy the flowers.

 

As the name suggests, this mix is made up of annual species only, so they will flower for a single year, then die back.

Full species list

Field poppy (Papaver rhoeas), cornflower (Centaurea cyanus), corn marigold (Glebionis segetum) and mayweed (Triplospermum inodorum).

 

How to grow

 

Sow March-May for summer flowers, or August-early October for flowers the following spring.

 

Choose a flat, sunny spot. Clear any weeds, dig over the soil, break up any large lumps and rake the soil flat.

 

Then scatter your seeds, pressing or raking them in gently. To help you sow your mix as evenly as possible, try mixing your wildflower seeds with completely dry sand (damp sand won't work!).

 

No need to cover with earth or compost. Just water regularly.
