summer glory collection

large 3 gram packet £5.99

    • Position: full sun
    • Soil: poor, well-drained soil
    • Rate of growth: average

      Once a familiar sight in our cornfields and roadside verges, these annual wildflowers will help sustain bees and other pollinating insects - as well as create a visual feast in meadows and naturalised planting schemes in a smaller garden.

      One packet containing 3 grams of seeds will cover approximately 2 sq m

      The collection contains:
      Corn Chamomile - Anthemis arvensis
      Corncockle - Agrostemma githago
      Cornflower - Centaurea cyanus
      Corn Marigold - Chrysanthemum seggetum
      Field Poppy - Papaver rhoeas

      Garden care: Rake the soil well to form a fine tilth and then sow seeds, scattering them evenly before raking them in and firming down. Wildflowers prefer poor soils so avoid using fertilisers. Keep them well watered initially and remove any weeds if they appear. Do not cut back the old plants until they have scattered their seed. Then in the following spring, re-cultivate the soil for another crop.

    • Sow: March - May or September - October

    • Flowering: August - September or May - July
