A blend that offers an amazingly colourful display of wildflowers

Ivisons Bee/Butterfly Mix is a 50:50 combination of native British wildflower and grass seeds that cope well with most soil types. The added grass species in this mix are carefully matched with the wildflowers to create a meadow as it would appear naturally. The grass will germinate and establish first, creating a safe environment for your wildflowers to flourish. 

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 Bee/Butterfly Wildflower 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.
