Sandy Soils

Sandy Soils

Sandy soils are prone to drying out quickly, so this mixture contains drought tolerant wildflower species with deep root systems, along with a huge display of colour. As with most wildflowers this mixture thrives in low nutrient soils. This is a perennial mix so it will produce colour for many years after establishment.

Sowing Instructions

One of the most important things to remember is to start with a weed-free seed bed to reduce the weeds from competing with the wildflowers. 


Cultivate and spray off any weeds.


Mix the seed well in the bag/box before planting. If you have problems drilling or broadcasting by hand you can mix with a fine dry sand to give some weight to the seed.


Broadcast or drill the seed into a clean weed-free seedbed.


Roll the ground before, then flat roll after planting.

Once you have sown the mixture, it is very important to manage the growth for the first year. This includes cutting and weeding if possible. If sowing in the autumn, cut the sward when the grass gets established and keep it down to help the flower seeds to germinate. If sowing in the spring, again keep the grass low for the first growing season.
