This mix contains the unique sought after wild flower species that my mixes are known for,
28 species in all, including Fragrant Orchid and Common Spotted Orchid, look through the list below to see the full range of beautiful chalk and limestone loving wild flowers I have included. This mix will provide you with a very long flowering season from April to mid-September or beyond. It contains a ratio of 20% flowers to grasses. It should be seeded at a rate of 3g per m2.

For areas smaller than 100sqm please see my ‘Luxury seed mix for chalk or limestone soils’ which you can view by clicking here.

This mix contains only perennial wild flowers which will survive and spread year after year by their root-stock and vegetative growth without the need for additional seeding. Being perennials expect the majority of flowering to occur from the second year after seeding and every year thereafter. If you wish for colourful flowering during the first year as well, then also purchase a quantity of my luxury annual mix or economy annual mix for your seeding area, equivalent to 10% of your total seeding area to add to this economy chalk and limestone mix and tell me if you wish me to mix these together for your convenience, alternatively consider my special luxury mix for chalk or limestone soils or my general purpose mix which both contain an annual inclusion to provide colourful first year flowering.

For something nice to surround your wild flower area click here to see my ‘maintenance free fencing’ or as an alternative to seeding, consider using my ‘wild flower turf’.  For environmentally friendly pest deterrents I suggest you check out the products from the following company’s website by clicking here.
