Description

The flora in this mixture is specially selected for its attraction and benefit to both bees and butterflies.  This is a visually stunning mixture of both perennial and annual wildflowers along with the appropriate grass species.

Remember when you buy your butterfly and honey bee wild flower mixture that it is vitally important that you sow in virgin soil.  Wild flowers will perform poorly in existing lawns.

1Kg covers up to 200 square metres sown at 5 grams per square metre.
