100% Pure Yellow Rattle Mix

Yellow rattle is an annual, completing its life cycle in one year. In early spring the seeds germinate and grow quickly. As their roots develop underground, they seek out the roots of plants growing nearby, especially grasses. If you have too much grass in your wildflower meadow, Yellow Rattle will help suppress the grasses without using chemicals, hence it's known as ‘natures lawnmower’.

Part of the joy of creating a wildflower meadow is seeing how it changes over time. As mentioned, once the yellow rattle starts to establish, the grass will become thinner and plants like oxeye daisy will start to appear.

How To Sow Ivisons Oxeye Daisy 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.
