Will the 'shade showcase come up like lawn and wild flowers or do you mix with lawn seed?
Thanks

Hi Michael,

Thank you for your question. Shade Showcase is made up of annual and perennial wildflowers and meadow grasses. The grasses in this mix help to keep your meadow weed free and make a great habitat for wildlife in winter when your meadow is not in bloom.

Do you mow this in the late summer/autumn when flowering plants have seeded?
Question by: Eileen Douglas on 5 Oct 2021, 16:04
Hi Eileen, thanks very much for your question.
Yes, at the end of their first blooming season, you will notice the leaves of your wildflowers will turn brown. This signals the end of their bloom, and it’s time to cut them down to kickstart their growth for the following year. Using your garden shears or strimmer, cut your wildflowers down to 7cm. As you do this, the seed heads will have dropped onto the soil surface. Remove the majority of the clippings but leave the seed heads behind. Firm them into the soil by foot to embed them, and your wildflowers should return the following year.

This really depends on when you sow the seed. If you want to sow now, you are likely to see the meadow grasses and maybe a few annuals but most won't bloom until the spring when the temperatures are more favorable. If you want to wait until early spring you can expect the meadow to bloom from late spring through to summer.
