Shady Characters - Wild flower seed mixture

£49.00

Shady characters: Dappled shade under the trees can be a difficult spot to get some colour, so here’s a selection of flowers that thrive in woodland conditions. Contains British native wildflower species suited for shady conditions, including agrimony, wood avens, hedge bedstraw, giant bellflower, nettle-leaved bellflower, betony, red campion, rough chervil, field forget-me-not, foxglove, upright hedge-parsley, common hemp nettle, pignut, primrose, ragged-robin, ramsons, wood sage, hairy St John's-wort, germander speedwell, selfheal, tufted vetch, hedge woundwort and wood vetch.

Sow in spring or autumn into a fine, well prepared seed bed and lightly rake, then firm soil. Ensure seedlings are well watered and keep free of unwanted weeds. Cut back all growth at the end of flowering (late Aug-Sept), removing all cuttings. If growing with grasses cut them back every few weeks in first year to allow wildflowers to establish, otherwise grasses will dominate. This unique Plantlife wildflower mix will help you (and your bees and butterflies) enjoy native flowers in your garden.
