Waterways Ireland Bord na Mona , Coillte and many more
Since 1990,  Irish public and private customers have grown over 8000 acres of Irish wildflowers.

From Apple Facility (Cork) to the Corrib Pipeline, our flora meets all requirements.

Our range of native species in our specially blended mixtures are easy to install, 
low energy and lock up more carbon than lawn.
Our products once correctly established, 
will last indefinitely and become more Bio-diverse and colourful as the years pass by.

We judge our seed on the establishment of floras after the third year after sowing. By then if managed correctly we expect all sites bar 5% of customers each year will contain enough native flora, we go out of our way to assist those 5% of customers who struggle to grow wildflowers. we are successful at growing wildflowers because we study our customers results and identify patterns in failures. yes from time to time we have sowed perfectly good seed and it failed to grow, other times we sowed older seed that did germinate. That is why we offer full or part guarantee. 

The early years before and after sowing are ever changing and the most challenging. 
Weeds have to be controlled  Most products must be maintained annually.

After three to five years, sometime seven, the soil fertility will drop and weeds will fail to invade and grass will stay small and more flora will appear from your original sowing. In grassy meadows, species such as Yellow Rattle, Eyebright or Red Bartsia should be established where possible.

The growers Manual explains all. Growers Manual
