Wildflowers are notoriously difficult to establish from seed or from plug plants. Conditions need to be just right and many an attempt at making an area of wildflower meadow has led to disappointment. MeadowMat comes to you with around 75% coverage of wild flowers and grasses already growing strongly and ready to root into your prepared soil. These will very quickly establish into a lush sward. The plants are grown from seed on to a thin layer of growing medium that is supported by a fine net. MeadowMat is not wildflower turf as the roots are not disturbed during harvest and transportation, so once laid onto prepared soil, it will very quickly form a healthy sward of mixed wild flowers.
MeadowMat is grown on a mesh netting. It can be laid onto any prepared soil although it thrives on free draining, poor quality soils. MeadowMat is supplied in 1 sq m slabs. Once laid you should keep the mat moist until it is established.
The MeadowMat is supplied pre-cut so the flowers will not be visible, once laid you can let it grow long. It is very low maintenance, you only need to cut once at the end of Autumn although on more fertile soils it will benefit from a cut in spring as well. Use a mower or strimmer and cut back to 50-75mm and remove the clippings.
If desired you can mow pathways through your MeadowMat. It is also perfect for use on any banking.
