A mixture of perennial and annual legumes that improve the soil structure and its nutrient content.
€2,50 – €12,25
This is not a fancy mix, not suitable for sowing on small areas. A very economical blend for a base of legume plants characterized by a high supply of nectar and pollen, with which many species of insects can use. The mixture can be used as a green fertilizer improve structure and soil abundance in nutrients. It is well suited as a forecrop when establishing meadows. The mixture is best used as a stand-alone mixture, because legumes show intensive growth and they will compete with other species.
100 g of seed mixture is enough for a meadow area of 40 m².
The stand for an annual beekeeping meadow should be prepared as for any agricultural cultivation – the soil should be loosened and cleared of plant residues.
Before sowing, the seeds must be mixed – it is important that the mixture is sown evenly over the entire surface. If the area is larger, we divide it into smaller fragments and portion the mixture of seeds proportionally to their number. Adding the mixture of seeds to the carrier, e.g. vermiculite or sand in a proportion of min. 1 l. filler per 100 g of seed mixture, will increase the volume of the seed and facilitate even sowing and control of the sowing area.
Due to the fact that the mixture consists of species with large seeds, the area should be slightly raked after sowing to cover the seeds.
site should be rolled or trampled to ensure good contact of the seeds with the ground. Finally, we water the future meadow. If this is not possible, sowing seeds should preferably be planned in the time before the rain. It is important that the delicate roots of young plants have good conditions to penetrate the moist soil. It is important for the proper development of plants to maintain a moderate substrate humidity in the intensive growth period, especially on permeable soils.
We mow the mixture in depending on your needs. More often if we want to use plants as green fertilizer or mulch, less often if flowering plants are to be used by insects. Mowing should be performed high (approx. 5-10 cm above the ground) and without chopping the swath, e.g. with a traditional or mechanical scythe, and with a bar mower for larger areas. After mowing, the hay is left for a few days so that the seeds end up in the soil and the inhabitants leave the stalks cut. After this time, the hay should be removed so as not to fertilize the soil, which would promote the growth of nitrogen-loving grasses. Polish perennial flowers can be mowed every few weeks to strengthen perennial plants and eliminate unwanted annuals.
The meadow begins to bloom intensively from the second year, which should be more abundant with each season, with proper mowing. We mow the perennial meadow twice a season, using the same technique as in the first season. The first mowing should be done after the flowers have flowered and the seeds fall off (June / July). The second mowing is performed in the fall (then the area will resemble a lawn in winter) or in early spring (in winter, the stalks will be a shelter for insects and a canteen for birds, as well as insulation for young seedlings that will have time to grow before the end of the season).
