The mixture of native species perennial flowers and grasses for wetlands. Seeds to be sown in well-drained, fertile and humid soils and areas near water courses and reservoirs.
€3,50 – €22,25
The mixture is made of 22 native species of perennial flowers and 9 species of grass that do well in wetlands and in humid places. With the help of this mixture, it is possible to get fowered well-drained, fertile and humid soil and areas near water courses and reservoirs.
The mixture can be enriched with the addition of 10% field flowers if the flowering effect is required in the first year.
For best results, the seeds should be sown on earth cleaned from the existing vegetation and its remains – rhizomes or roots. Before sowing, the area should be leveled so that the seeds are not washed away rain or watering. Sowing in the lawn is a method that offers no guarantee of success. If in there are clearances on the turf, and the plants will have enough space for it growth, flowers may appear in some places, but the effectiveness of this method is often low.
Avoid sowing in the period of excessive soil moisture and in periods when flooding of the sown areas is possible. Species in the mixture can be washed away or rot when it is too wet, and only adult plants can survive periodic inundation.
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 seeds on the surface – 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.
After When sowing, the area should be rolled or trampled to ensure good contact with the seeds ground. On the end of the future we water the meadow. If this is not possible, then sowing seeds in if possible, it is worth planning in the time before the rain. It is important that the delicate roots of young plants have good conditions for penetrating moist soil. It is important for the proper development of plants to maintain a moderate substrate moisture the initial period of growth, especially on permeable soils.
During the sowing season, flowers are unlikely to appear, but for good condition in the following years, the meadow requir in this time, to be mowed several times. Mowing should be performed high (approx. 5-10 cm above the ground) and without chopping, e.g. a traditional or mechanical scythe, a with a bar mower for larger areas. Hay after leave the mowing at days for the seeds to go to soil, a the inhabitants left the cut stalks. After this time, the hay should be removed so as not to fertilize the soil, which would promote the growth of nitrogen-loving grasses. Perennial flowers can be mowed every few weeks to strengthen perennial plants and eliminate annuals undesirable plants.
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 will wither and the seeds fall off (June / July). The second mowing is to be 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 started to grow before the end of the season).
