Annual Meadow Common Questions

Q: Can I sow an annual meadow in the Autumn?
Can I sow an annual meadow in the Autumn?
Answer:

Yes, but it is not advised as you can expect to lose most if not all of the new seedlings during the winter. The remaining un-germinated seeds will grow earlier in spring and will provide a sparser display in the spring and summer.

Q: Can I mix the annual seed with perennial seed?
Can I mix the annual seed with perennial seed?
Answer:

No. If you are trying to establish a proper perennial meadow then do not put annual seeds with the mix. Annuals will very quickly out compete the slower perennials and create bare patches later in the season which will encourage weed infestation. If you want a hybrid mix that is very easy to establish and will flower happily for 2-3 years or more use our ‘Magic Carpet’ mix.

Q: Can I mix the annual seed with grass to make it go further?
Can I mix the annual seed with grass to make it go further?
Answer:

No. Grass is very competitive and will quickly dominate. If you want to make the mix go further you are better to decrease the sowing rate – but keep the edges close to the paths at the normal rate if you can.

Q: What happens if I sow less or more than the recommended rate?
What happens if I sow less or more than the recommended rate?
Answer:

It’s best to stick to the 2 to 3 grams a metre rule as that’s how we’ve formulated the meadow designs but don’t worry too much either way. 3 grams and you will get a thicker, more boisterous display. It will probably look amazing early on but be a bit too competitive for a fantastic late display. Exactly the opposite if you’ve gone down to 1 gram. It might look very sparse to start with but often this is compensated by each individual plant growing much bigger and some amazing late season meadows.

Q: If I’ve sown an annual meadow one year will it regrow the next year?
If I’ve sown an annual meadow one year will it regrow the next year?
Answer:

No, not really. Many species won’t reseed at all. Some species will but in a much more random and patchy way. If you have a fairly infertile soil though or you have experienced very little weed infestation you can get some lovely 2nd and 3rd year displays taking place from the few species that do reseed.

Q: Do I need to protect the seed from birds, mice or squirrels?
Do I need to protect the seed from birds, mice or squirrels?
Answer:

No. We have sown meadows in areas that were afterwards visited by big flocks of birds and in areas where mice and squirrels were particularly happy and so were our meadows in the end.

Pictorial Annual Meadow Seed Mixes

Love these seed mixes and have used them for years. I am not a great gardener and they are the only ones that work for me. I moved to town last year, planting cornfield and classic along my front border, so I could see them from my office. We are now known as the house with the flowers!! Thank you Pictorial Meadows.

This is a fantastic mix. Have just seen it at Wentbridge Castle in the John Arnold Gardens. The display brings tears to your eyes. Will be pursuing the mix for my own garden as a reduction in maintenance of my quarter acre is on the cards. Wentworth Castle is a great place to visit to. April /May is the best time.

Have just visited Kedleston Hall & was stopped in my tracks by the most wonderful display of poppies etc.The head gardener told me they had come from your company.So many other people were commenting on the wonderful show of flowers& taking pictures of them.Utterly wonderful for us humans but also for the many bees & other flying insects that were visiting them.
