Sandro's Irish Wildflower Conservation Grade Seed Mixture:  

Range:  Wild Flower Mixtures  (Code WF)


Product Name: Tidy-Town, Avenues and Approach roads  (Full sun to light-shade)

Product Code:  WF04 

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

Especially made for Tidy Town Associations and Groups  

This mixture is for customers who wish to sow lanes, roadside verges and avenues often with dappled or semi shade,  full sun or rich top soil.
WF04 is for entrances to town and villages, new rural houses, newly planted tree lined avenues, rural roadside & hedges.

This mixture can be scattered and raked into recent repair work on country roads, where tractors and trucks have destroyed the margin.
WF04 will improve and enrich raw soil, take the bare look of any situation, and tolerate the many changing temperatures of a typical Irish Summer. If wet, included are species that will flourish even in standing water. If bone dry, never mind, there is a bunch of species to cope.

WF04 is a colourful, wildlife attracting mix and can be cut once in spring or cut in June to control rank grasses just as the first flush of flower finishes flowering or cut at the end of summer in Autumn if everything is normal and well behaved. 

Foxglove will thrive well the soil is bare for the seeds to germinate
