Plants that require two growing seasons to complete their developmental cycle. During the first year, only a short shoot with a rosette of assimilating leaves and storage organs is formed. In the second year, flower stems and seeds develop, after which the plant dies.
Common virgin, wild hemlock, common viper’s bugloss… These names do not mean anything to you yet, but they may soon become a favourite part of the landscape outside your window! Field and meadow biennials are a great choice because of their length of bloom and variety of species. They take longer to grow but look more impressive than annuals. The seeds have time to develop, become familiar with the soil and survive until the next season.
Field flower seeds – a biennial meadow instead of a lawn
If you’re looking for an idea to spruce up a garden, square or park, there’s no better solution than a flower meadow. This is not only an interesting landscape feature, but also a place created for those whose comfort we should care most about today – namely wild pollinators. Bees, bumblebees, flies and ladybugs will be grateful for the extra space where they can spend all day extracting valuable nectar, pollinating other plants and thus keeping the ecosystem in balance. Take care of nature and reach for the seeds of biennial field flowers.
