Overseeding Into Wildflower Areas
Yellow Rattle wildflower seed 50g
This is our straight yellow rattle seed. Yellow Rattle is very popular, because it helps supress grass growth.
Most of our mixtures already contain Yellow Rattle, although you may add this in yourself and allows more wildflowers to grow. It is a semi-parasitic annual.
- Rake the area where you intend to sow the wildflowers
- Ensure adequate soil is exposed for the seed
- Spread the seed by hand
- Tread the seed into the soil
Wildflower seeds thrive when they have little competition from other plants. Try to thin out other plants in the soil to give the seed a better chance at establishing.
