Wildflower Lawn (100)
Bring back childhood memories of daisy chains , dandelion clocks and buttercup games while providing nectar rich wildflowers for pollinators.
Wildflower Lawn can be scattered on bare soil with or without grass seed, or you can grow these amongst your existing lawn by cutting out little patches for the balls (please note they are not likely to grow if scattered directly onto your lawn, you will need to create little patches of bare earth first and water the balls in well). Yay!
Each seed ball contains approximately 30 seeds from a mix of Buttercup, Dandelion, White Clover, Birdsfoot Trefoil, Red Clover, Common Knapweed – low growing wildflowers which can often be spotted within grassy areas or grazed fields.
Each bag contains 100 seed balls, enough to cover 5 metre square 15-25 medium sized pots (leave at least 10cm between each ball). Best scattered in Spring or Autumn.
Meadow Buttercup (Ranunculus acris)
The tallest and most elegant of our native buttercups, this plant sometimes reaches a height of 90cm. This native winter-green perennial is found on most grazed or cut grasslands throughout Britain, but has a preference for moist soils.
