BEE-FRIENDLY SCOTTISH WILDFLOWER MIX

 

This Scottish wildflower mix is packed with 24 native species that are perfect sources of nectar and shelter for bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects. 100% wildflowers, no grasses.

This 100% wildflower mix is perfect for creating a wildflower meadow or area of garden that will support your local wildlife. ​

 

The mix includes a combination of annual, biennial and quick growing perennial wildflowers, providing excellent sources of nectar for bumblebees, honeybees, moths and butterflies.

 

The annual species should bloom first, bringing colour and beauty in the first year. In subsequent years the perennials will bloom, and can be left to develop.

Full species list

 

Cornflower, corn marigold, mayweed, teasel, viper's bugloss, weld, yarrow, clustered bellflower, common knapweed, field scabious, meadow cranesbill, wood cranesbill, rough hawkbit, ox-eye daisy, wild marjoram, selfheal, red campion, ragged robin, white campion, bladder campion, hedge woundwort, red clover, tufted vetch and bush vetch. 

​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.
