Seed prices range from 00.10 cent to 44 cent per metre, depending on soil type, location, seed mixture and sowing rates
Average price estimated for Irish farmers between 00.21 cent to 38 cent per metre for a suitable seed
This makes wildflower Pier 3 option very attractive. Seed Price varied greatly according to site and cost of species and soil or land suitability.
Price is determined mainly if hand or machine harvested and seed size. Small seed or uncommon species is often the most expensive to produce
If allowed by your farm advisor, we recommend closing of your smallest sunny field and not fencing off a small 1000m2 area ,
as the cost of the fence will be the main cost in time and funds.

I get about 10 complaints per year, where meadows failed, usually in very dry summers, new seedlings can struggle, but they recover with rain.
Most wildflower meadows require one cut per year, then rake and remove the dead grass / brash to allow for more germination
