Aqua Annual Meadow Seed Mix


Originally designed to represent the shimmering waters of the London 2012 Olympic Aquatic Centre, Pictorial Meadows' Aqua Annual Meadow Mix has been improved every year to help give even more visual impact.

Restful and harmonious, an Aqua meadow combines a broad palette of blues, lifted by foaming white and accenting undercurrents of lime green. The Aqua Annual Meadow Mix has a tremendously long season with some interesting variations as autumn approaches.

  • An annual flower mix celebrating beautiful blue
  • A clever combination of British wildflowers and non-invasive flowering plants
  • Sow March-May, directly into a prepared seedbed
  • Pack contains 6g of seed, enough to fill a plot measuring 2sqm
  • High pollen and nectar availability to support native insects and other wildlife

Annual meadow seed mixtures are carefully composed blends of native and non-native hardy annuals designed to provide high-quality, aesthetically pleasing floral displays. They have been developed during several years of intensive trials at the University of Sheffield. In gardens, annual meadows provide a colourful, wildlife-friendly replacement for mown grass; they can be sown formally in beds or to provide colour between shrubs, trees and perennials. 

Pictorial Meadows' seed mixes will flower and provide visual interest over an extremely long period of time, typically from early summer through to late autumn.

This mix contains:

  • Desert Bluebell (Phacelia campanularia)
  • Purple Sage (Salvia horminum)
  • Sweet Scabious (Scabiosa atropurpurea)
  • Sweet William Catchfly (Silene armeria)

Exact contents may vary from season to season depending on seed availability.
