Irish wild sourced wild flora / Irish farm grown. 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 base firm,
below 2 inches/5 cm
Mixtures can be sown onto 'weed free' ploughed or cultivated clean soil, but
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
these are stitch sown and rolled in.
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
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 and early spring to encourage the self set perennial seed to germinate.
if added as at percentage displayed, Specialist grasses if advertised are available
for certain mixtures

pic's in time, before its too late,
they don't read our growers manual and
