Native Origin Irish Wildflower Seed Mixtures: Ecotype Range 

 

Product Code:  EC13 
Product Name: Tussock and Hummocks, Tall - Can be left uncut

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

 

Description: 

Ideal for steep banks, which are too dangerous to cut on. It suits roadsides, industrial parks, waste places and anywhere where cutting is impossible and the 'look' is not as important as the function of 'No Cutting'.  This is not a mixture for small gardens or the faint hearted, but it is spectacular and attracts all beneficial wildlife species.
This version of our tall flowering mixture requires minimum or no maintenance and suits most soil types. 

EC14 is especially for large gardens, country houses and landscapes which need dramatic impact and where the mixture is unlikely to be uncut.

The species therein are similar to many other mixtures, what makes this mixture different is the amount of Biennials, a they are ideal for controlling grass and growing in matted weedy situations where grass is not removed.. 

This mixture contains species blended in a way that if left uncut can compete with grasses and will spread to form tall clumps of insect attracting flora. 
If it can be cut once a year all the better. 

WF08 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, Lesser knapweed, Burdock and Wild Angelica.
