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 includes:
- Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus)
- Larkspur (Delphinium ajacis)
- Love-in-a-mist (Nigella damascena)
- Pink Dandelion (Crepis rubra)
Exact contents may vary from season to season depending on seed availability.
