Wildflower Seeds

More and more wildflower mixes are being used in Landscape and Amenity areas

Colour Splash is our featured range.

Over the past few years, Colour Splash mixtures have started to be used on many different sites in the UK, to our, and many others delight. The mixtures have been used in a broad range of landscape and amenity areas as well as golf course roughs and urban spaces. The development of the mixtures started over ten years ago in the county of Loir-et-Cher, in the centre of France.

Colour Splash mixtures meet the numerous expectations of the public, who enjoy seeing a dash of colour, but their effect on the landscape is the most obvious one. For wildlife, they can provide a refuge that offers a rich and varied source of food.

When sown strategically near municipal sites and landscaped areas, our colour splash mixtures represent a remarkably simple way of brightening up such locations and enhancing their aesthetic appeal to the general public.

For bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects, they are a source of pollen and nectar - sometimes very useful when other resources are scarce.

Benefits of Colour Splash:

  • Only flowers (no forage or grasses)
  • Very easy to sow in the spring
  • Vigorous plants, capable of competing with weeds
  • Fast flowering and as long- lasting as possible
  • Well balanced and successional flowering
  • Robust plants, capable of resisting a reasonable period of drought
  • Cost effective
  • Possible to hand weed

"He he. It was pretty similar to one of those bird ball things. Gave me a boost to finish the job though. 
 
Yep, fertilised as well. 
 
For some reason I didn't get notified of your post? "

"Now I ask myself, was it all worth it... After spending £300 on soil, machinery, seed and feed and then look in the garden for the 1st time today and basically I just want to cry. It looks like a mine field. Worm casts!!!!! "
