    Product information

    A mini meadow seed box with a combination of native meadow grass and perennial and annual wildflower species to create your own mini meadow from scratch. 20g of seed will cover an area of 6-7 square metres and can be created over an existing lawn or on bare soil. A beautiful wildflower meadow area will be created in your garden that helps to feed pollinators. Birds will also benefit from the attraction of insects to your garden.

    You can make your mini-meadow in two ways:

    1. On an existing sunny lawn, mow your chosen area as short as possible, then scarify (scratch) it with a rake to expose little bits of soil (it will look a bit ravaged at this point, but don’t worry – it is vital to give the seeds a chance to germinate), and remove all clippings/raked vegetation onto the compost.
    2. Elsewhere in the garden or dig, thoroughly weed and rake an area of ground, ideally in a sunny position.

    Then sow the seeds at 3g per sqm and water. Mow (and always remove the cuttings) every late summer through autumn. Remember, this is a hay meadow mix, so doesn’t contain colourful annuals such as poppies. The flowers are beautiful and extremely beneficial to wildlife, but this mix isn’t about colour fireworks!
