There just isn’t an easier way to convert an area of your garden into a wildflower meadow! Clear the ground, roll out the turf, water it from time time then sit back and watch it grow!
It doesn’t matter how large or small an area you want to convert… our Wildflower Turf is supplied in easy to use slabs, each slabs covering approximately 0.64 square metres. We do however need to make a minimum order of 5 rolls ourselves, so if you want less than this, please give us a call to register your interest so that we can contact you as soon as we have another order to include it on.
We use a 50:50 mix of wildflower and grass seed so that you get a high proportion of flowers. All seeds used are, of course, from native stock. The grasses used in the turf form a dense sward which acts as a weed blanket, giving the wildflower plants a head start against outside competition, and have been chosen to complement rather than overwhelm the flowers.
Because Wildflower Turf is grown on a plastic base all the root development is contained within the turf itself, creating a good mat of roots. This gives it great strength which in turn makes it easy to handle and lay. And because it hasn’t been cut from topsoil it hasn’t lost its roots, so it establishes itself really quickly in your garden.
Maintenance, apart from watering it during establishment, is minimal… no weeding or fertilising should be necessary, just an annual cutting in Autumn.
The plants in flower will vary through the spring and summer according to the different species of flowers in the turf. The emergence of flowers and the type of plants that flower will vary from year to year according to temperature, moisture and available nutrients. This will ensure that no two years are the same (as is the case with true wild flower meadows) and gives a constantly changing landscape.
Particularly when turf is young it can look patchy in places but within 4 weeks it roots in and looks wonderful.
The time of year laid will affect the flowering of the turf.
