Fresh Yellow Rattle Seed available - Fresh Yellow Rattle seed will be sent out from the end of July/beginning of August. Fresh seed has a higher success rate than seed which has been dried for longer. Yellow Rattle is a useful plant to introduce when creating a wild flower meadow. It is semi-parasitic on the roots of plants, especially grasses, & once established will reduce the vigour of the original grass by up to 50%.
Many of the flowers from last month will continue - some of them all summer long. Here are some July Wild Flowers that we currently stock seeds for.
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.
Biennial Wild Flower Seeds to flower next year can be sown now, but ensure that the seeds/seedlings are not allowed to dry out over the Summer eg Evening Primrose, Foxglove, Teasel.
