The flowers are not only great for bees but will add loads of colour to your garden. Bees prefer blue flowers, so the Phacelia, Borage, Echium and Cornflower are a vibrant mix of blues, spiced up with rich-red Common Poppies.”
Sow the seeds evenly over a sunny area of your garden that you have dug over, raked and weeded. This pack will cover an area of about 5 square metres so if your patch is smaller, decrease the sowing rate accordingly.
After sowing, lightly tread or roll the seed area to ensure the seed is in good contact with the soil, and keep it watered until the plants are established. Allow the flowers to bloom and release their seeds back into the soil. Cut them down to the ground as the plants die off, and remove the cuttings onto the compost heap or into your green bin.
If you want to grow this mix again in the same patch next year, just cultivate the ground in the same way, removing any weeds, before sowing a fresh packet.
