Best Garden Photo/email Winner 2015

Dear Sandro. I try to get as many bee-attractant plants as I can find. I sowed two of your seed mixtures.
The garden exploded into life and every square inch was covered in a riot of wild flowers, some of which I'd not seen before.
Over the summer the flowers attracted seven different species of bee, up to about twenty different hoverflies, three types of dragonfly, damselflies, shield bugs, butterflies and moths, and many insects I couldn't begin to name.

 

 

 

 

 

When the foliage died off in late Autumn I left it there and the tits and finches feasted on the seed.
All in all an unqualified success. 

Many thanks
Derek Martin, Irish Wildlife Trust Longford/ Westmeath Branch) 
Ps. I did better than my friends who also sowed your seed.

See what we have sown in Ireland over 25 years

 

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.
