SKU: 140003

Sale price£2.99


This Shady Area Mix contains species that are suited to darker areas but still receive some light, including shade-lovers such as campion and columbine.

Can be utilised in 'difficult' corners of the garden and suited to planting in shadier domestic flower beds, containers and large pots, area coverage is 1-2 square metres depending on how thickly sown. Flowers late May-early October.

Sowing period: March - May

To prepare for sowing, clear the area of vegetation in advance and cultivate the top 5cm (2"). There is no need to dig too deep as doing so would also bring potentially unwanted weed seed to the surface. In an ideal world, allow any existing seed to germinate and kill/remove the seedlings. Rake over the area to create a fine tilth and sow the seeds lightly on the surface. Lightly rake or tread in the seed. Do not bury the seed too deep as it may hinder germination. Keep moist.
