Sowing Instructions for Seeds: Yellow Rattle needs a period of cold to germinate successfully, so is best sown between August and December. Yellow Rattle is an annual and so if used in a meadow, it is best to cut the meadow after the rattle has had a chance to seed ie after the end of July.
If sown into an existing meadow, ensure that the grass is cut very short (an inch or less) and create areas of bare soil by scarifying, harrowing, raking etc. You should aim to expose up to 50% bare soil. Sow the seed onto this bare soil and ensure good contact by rolling or treading in.
plants and seeds are of native British origin. Please
note: small quantities of grass seed may also be present.
Fresh Yellow Rattle seed is available from August to December. Fresh seed needs to be sown immediately and will have a higher success rate than seed which has been dried for longer.
