Description

Native British Wildflowers range has been developed from research conducted by Butterfly Conservation, BBKA, RSPB and the Woodland Trust.

This Winter Bird Feeding Mix includes perennial, biennial and annual species in a mixture of tall and short plants. Designed to attract seed-eating garden birds. The seedheads provide interest throughout the winter season.

Sowing period: March - May 

Perfect for planting in domestic flower beds, containers and large pots, area coverage is 1-2 square metres depending on how thickly sown. Flowers June-December.

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.
