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.
