 Wild Flower Calendar

Primroses and Daisies are still in flower this month, but many more wild flowers are beginning to come into bloom.

Meadow Mixes for creating a Wild Flower Meadow can be sown this month.  They can be sown in the autumn (August to October) or Spring (February to May), but on heavy clay soils it is be best to sow in Spring as water-logging may cause some seed/seedlings to rot during the Winter.

Wild Flower Seeds which are best sown in Spring can be sown now.  Some wild flower seeds will germinate easily, but others can take longer.  This is one of the most economic and easiest ways to establish wild flowers in your garden.  Try one of our 
Seed Collections
which contain a mix of seeds for specific locations, soil types or to attract wildlife eg Honey & Bumble Bee, Butterfly or Bird Mixes.

Warmer weather can lead to a growth of algae and blanket weed in your pond as the temperature of the water starts to rise and before the other plants in the pond have re-established after the Winter.  It will usually clear up within a few weeks, but if not, barley straw can be used to inhibit the growth of algae while the pond finds a natural balance which are made from barley straw and release natural compounds which inhibit the growth of algae in the pond water for about six months giving the pond a chance to establish a balance.

New wild flower meadows sown the previous Autumn, should have their first cut when the grass reaches 10-15cms in height unless they include a 'Cornfield Nurse' or other annual flowers.
