Sandro's Irish Wildflower Conservation Grade Seed Mixture:  

Range:  Designer Wild Flower Mixtures  (Code DW)

 

Product Name: Tall Wildflowers 

Product Code:  DW03

If purchasing this seed mix, print or save this page and keep it as your reference as the species and advice change occasionally

 

Description: 

This new version of our tall flowering mixture is an improved version of a timeless favourite amongst our customers as it requires minimum or no maintenance and suits most soil types. 

DW03 is especially for large gardens, country houses and landscapes which need dramatic impact, but it will do at the back of small gardens.. 
This mixture contains species blended in a way that if left uncut can compete with grasses and will spread to form bold clumps of insect attracting flora. 
If it can be cut once a year all the better. 

DW03 will act as a summer screen, and is ideal for sowing behind shorter meadows, up to tall walls and on waste ground. 

Included are particularly useful for beneficial insects such as Yarrow, Burdock and Wild Angelica.
This is not a mixture for small gardens or the faint hearted, but it is spectacular and attracts all beneficial wildlife species.
