Red & White Clover Pure Wildflower Seeds Mix

Red and white clover is a common sight in wild meadows, flowing from spring to autumn, these flowers are very attractive to bees and other pollinating insects. It's also used in crop rotation due to its ability to fix soil lacking in nitrogen.

It is usually sown as a fodder crop for livestock. It is more palatable and digestible than pure grass forage, this is often the reason why livestock perform well when fed clover. It provides a home-grown source of protein, high protein intake leads to greater weight gain and milk yields. 

If you’re after a pristine lawn, you’re better off avoiding white clover as it can become invasive. However, if you want to create a low growing ground cover in record time then white clover is a perfect choice.

Wildflowers are very important in supporting our native insects and animals. Not only do they encourage high biodiversity, they also make a pretty and colourful addition to the garden.

How To Sow Ivisons Red and White Clover Mix:

  • Choose the area wisely. Wildflower mixtures generally persist well in areas of low fertility. If the soil is highly fertile it may be necessary to remove or strip existing topsoil and sow on to sub-soil. 
     
  • Remove all existing vegetation from the area. This can be done by hand, digging it out, or you can use a weed killer. 
     
  • Once all the vegetation has been removed, the soil will need digging over to a depth of no more than 10 cm. Any deeper and you're more than likely to bring up more weed seeds to the surface. 
     
  • Once dug over, rake the area to create a flat seed bed. 
     
  • Sow the seeds at the recommended sowing rate.
     
  • Firm down the area either using a roller or simply trod on the area to improve seed to soil contact. 
     
  • If the soil is dry it should be watered, however, it's important to avoid saturating the area.
