CORNFIELD ANNUALS WILDFLOWER MIX
This gorgeously bright, insect-friendly annual wildflower mix is made up of species traditionally found in cornfields.100% wildflowers, no grasses.
The species in the mix we source are all native to Britain.
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.
This mix comes in several different variations - but core species include scarlet field poppy (Papaver rhoeas), wild blue cornflower (Centaurea cyanus), yellow corn marigold (Glebionis segetum) and white corn chamomile (Anthemis arvensis).
Other species often included are corncockle ( Agrostemma Githago), scented mayweed (Matricaria recutita), night-flowering catchfly (Silene noctiflora) and common forget-me-not (Myosotis arvensis).
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.
