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

"Thanks!
 
Went yesterday and it's just drying out and they said they were just watering it for about ten minutes.
Ground was watered prior to laying but it's amazing how quickly your hard work can get undone. 
They've had a rollicking and are doing…"

"That was going to be my suggestion! That’s what I do. Get the leatherman out and dig it out straight away before it has the chance to go bad!

"If the thorn is surrounded by weeping puss you can try sitting in a bath of hot water and flexing your leg to draw it out. If that doesn’t work ask the pharmacist at your local chemist about using some drawing ointment.

Andrew Watts replied to John Powley's discussion New turf struggling
"A few things to consider:
1. Was  a "pre turf" fertiliser added to the soil before laying the turf? Has it been fed at all?
2. Check if it's being watered enough - should be moist enough down to 4" depth. Are they using a sprinkler or by hand?
3. Ha…"

Planting courses

Can any recommend home study diplomas for planting design courses? I've been looking at Oxford College of garden design but would be interested if anyone had pointers for me. I've been a gardener for 20 years but feel I want to do a bit of study.
