Timing:

Seeds need both warmth and moisture to grow and may be sown at any time of year when these conditions are met.

August-September and March-April usually produce the best conditions for sowing outside in most parts of the UK.  May to July sowing also work well in wetter western regions.  Late autumn sowing should be avoided on sites prone to water-logging in winter and late spring and summer sowing should be avoided on drought sites.  Sowing into existing grass work best in autumn.

Some plants need to be sown at particular times to fit in with their life cycles or biology. Cornfield Annuals need to be sown in the autumn or before May in the following spring to get a flowering display.

Sowing Rates:

Our recommended sowing rates for wild seed mixtures are much lower than conventional lawn and amenity grass rates (2-5g/m2 compared with 25-50g/m2). This is deliberate, as rather than aiming for rapid ground cover to suppress all weeds, wild seeding aims to allow an extended period of establishment with room for both fast growing grasses and slower germinating flower seeds. There is some scope for increasing or reducing rates to suit circumstances or budget.
