When to sow
The Highgrove Wildflower Seed Mix is best sown from late August to late October or again form early March to mid April. Good ground preparation and a weed free surface is key. If the site can be kept watered, seeding can take place any time from the beginning of March to the end of October. Sowing in autumn is recommended as sowing in early spring may result in the yellow rattle in the mix to fail and will need to be resown in the autumn.
More information on sowing, growing and management can be found on the Highgrove page of the Wildseed website: wildseed.co.uk.
