Mail Order:  Delivered by 'Án Post'   

Minimum order:  100 grams | Covers 66 metres2 | We simply cant pack any smaller. 

Provenances: Irish wild sourced wild flora / Irish farm grown. We do not ell imported flora.

A Seed Cert: Provided with every order.

Hand sow all mixtures. If you insist on using seed spreaders, add a few grams at a time. 
(Never sow with Per' Rye grass or other strong vigour grasses with wildflowers)

Most mixes are sown on weed free soil, no need to plough or power harrow, 
Just eliminate all vegetation - work the top 2 to 5mm. 
Keep seedbed underneath firm, ie, below 2 inches/5 cm

Mixtures can be sown onto 'weed free' ploughed or cultivated clean soil, 
Soil fertility rises the more its worked. 
Never just turn a living sward, the grass will come back..

Certain seed mixtures can be over sown into existing swards without the need to turn the soil, 
these are stitch sown and rolled in. They require regular cutting x 3 time per summer in early years
They are mainly successful on poor ground, they take 3 years to establish.

Mixtures contain: Annuals, Biennials and Perennials, 
The percentage of each type varies with mixtures as does grass if added..
Hardy or Cornfield Annuals, from 10 to 15 to 20 % of mix, depending, 
Annuals live their entire life cycle in one season. 

Sown in spring or Autumn on bare soil where to flower, 
Yellow rattle is one of few annual species that persists in meadows , 

(but you can save seed of annuals and replant of fresh dug ground) 

Biennials circa 10% to 15% of mix, they flower between 12 to 24 months, mostly in 2nd year, 

if well maintained, many will reseed and persist for years.


Perennials dominate most mixtures 65% to 95% depending, 
they germinate in 1st, 2nd and into the 3rd year.

Perennials flower when they have enough energy, 

if well maintained, many will reseed and persist for years.
In most cases it is perennials that out compete fine grasses, 

but suffer from coarse grass and rudimentary weeds,
 that is why 'You must' cut most meadows and clear away the dead foliage 

and then rake the soil between Autumn - early spring to encourage the self set perennial seed to germinate.

 

Meadows fail! Why, because 3% of customers do not follow our instruction and advice.

To clean all weeds or prepare the seed bed correctly, 4% don't maintain or manage the flora 
& they also don't photograph it and send me the pic's in time, before its too late, 

they don't read our growers manual and products specs, which I update all the time.  

We can no longer offer our 'no questioning guarantee' to customers who do not send us before and after photos. 

After 25 years, no-one can say our meadows don't grow, they do and we have 2500 photos to prove it,

Thousands of satisfied and happy customers - all meadows grow differently-so stay in touch, 

Email and send a few photos. .
