Sandro's Irish Wildflower Conservation Grade Seed Mixture:  

Range:  Wild Flower Mixtures  (Code GF)

 

Product Name: Cottage Garden Wildflowers

Product Code:  GF04 

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

 

Description: 

GF04 is the very best of our easy to grow Garden Wildflower range, suitable for any dry sunny to slightly shaded border. 
Ideal against a wall or as a mini meadow, well behaved but taller in a border, perfect for an island bed of wildflowers.

GF04 attracts butterflies in abundance. 

This mixture is intended for gardener who starts with very clean soil and are prepared to deadhead the fading flowers to maintain long season flowering. 
This is the 'floweriest' mixture we have in our entire range and is mostly a well behaved mix for a perennial border or meadow. 

Occasional thinning will be required and where favourite species are identified these can be transplanted or you can save the seed. 

To add further interest I often add additional uncommon species,
