A mixture of 7 native grasses and more than 20 perennial species of flowers to get rarely mowed flowery lawn. Flowers begin to bloom in the second year. Plants grow low and tolerate more frequent mowing. The meadow tolerates trampling well, but it is not suitable for intensive use.

Blooming lawn contains 80% of slow-growing native grasses in basic forms and 20% of low-cut, cut-resistant native perennial flowers, which bloom mostly from the second season after sowing. The mixture combines the properties of less used lawns and the ecological values of flowering plants. It can be used alone or as a transition zone between an intensively used lawn and a perennial flower meadow.
The mixture is intended for spring and autumn sowing in sunny and semi-shaded places, on average, clay and humus soils with moderate humidity.
100 g of seeds is enough to establish a flowering lawn of 20 m ².
For the best effect, the seeds should be sown on the ground that has been cleared of the existing vegetation and its plant debris – rhizomes or roots. Before sowing, the area should be flattened so that the seeds will not be washed away during rain or watering. Lawn seeding is a method that offers no guarantee of success. If there are clearances in the turf and the plants have enough space to grow, flowers may appear in places, but the effectiveness of this method is often low.
The lawn with flowers is sown in spring and autumn, when the risk of drought is low. The mixture is intended for sowing in sunny and semi-shaded places, on average, clay and humus soils with moderate humidity.
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.
We sow the seeds on top of the soil – do not cover them with soil, because many species germinate in the sun and without light will not start vegetation. If the area is larger, we divide it into smaller fragments and portion the mixture of seeds proportionally to their number. A meadow that is too densely sown, where too many plants grow and compete with each other for access to light and water during the intensive growth phase, may lose their aesthetics.
The area should be rolled or trampled to ensure good contact with the ground for the seeds. 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.
Due to the high proportion of grasses, the mixture requires regular mowing once a month in the first year in order to limit the competition of grasses in relation to slower growing perennial flowers. In the following years, mowing 3-5 times a season at a minimum height of 5 cm. The lawn with flowers can be additionally fertilized.
We mow the lawn as needed.
