Cornfield Colour Burst Wildlife & Conservation Seeds

    Cornfield Colour Burst Wildlife & Conservation Seeds


      A beautiful mix of classic annual wildflower species that will give a burst of colour in your garden throughout the summer months. This seed mix will attract pollinators and help to feed our bees.

      These flowers were once widespread in among cereal crops, but herbicides have removed most of them from the countryside, depriving bees and hoverflies of nectar and pollen and birds of their seeds. This is an easy way to put some of that value back. 

      The mix includes the rich-red of Common Poppies, sunshine yellow of Corn Marigold, pink of Corncockle and stunning blue of Cornflower.

      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 repeat the following year, repeat the instructions with a new packet of seeds. Some of the previous year’s seeds may also germinate.
