Martin's Easy Way to Make a Wildflower Meadow
If, like me, you would love a traditional wildflower meadow in your garden, but are worried about the uncertainty of seeding (it is often a major disappointment, even if you do everything
'right'), then wildflower meadow turf is what you need. Yes, it's a lot more expensive, but you get a fantastic wildflower meadow THIS YEAR, instead of waiting 3-4 years for a disappointing
result. This is why the people who make the show gardens at RHS Chelsea, etc. buy this stuff from us - it is an easy way to get a great result, quickly. If you're still not convinced, feel free
to order some wildflower meadow seed mix, and I really hope it works for you, but if your ground is anything other than perfect for seeding, I would urge you to consider this fantastic
I know what I'll be using when I make my wildflower meadow this year!!

Wildflower Meadow Turf for Landscaping & Green Roofing
If you've been watching TV nature and gardening programmes lately, you'll have seen a lot of interest in wildflower meadows. There are many advantages to wildflower meadows:
they cover the ground in a beautiful mix of wildflowers and grasses; they provide a banquet of nectar and pollen for bees and butterflies, and many other insects; and they just
make you feel good while you're looking at them. If you've been watching Sarah Raven's series Bees, Butterflies and Blooms on BBC 2, you'll have seen how wonderful these mini habitats can be, and how much pleasure
you and your friends can get from them.
We can't think of an easier way to convert an area of your garden into a wildflower meadow! Once you've cleared the ground you just need to roll out the turf,
water it from time to time, then sit back and watch it grow! You can even use it on a green roof for a really dramatic effect.
The native flower seeds mixed into the turf will give you wildflowers from early spring right through to autumn which will provide a fantastic habitat for birds,
butterflies and other insects. Whilst you're waiting for your turf to bloom you can easily add a few plug plants to it or even plant bulbs underneath it.
And it doesn't matter how large or small an area you want to convert... our Wildflower Turf is supplied in easy to use rolls, each roll covering approximately
1.25 square metres. The actual roll size is 77cm wide by 1.63m long. So, you can order just as much as you need, whether it is a single roll or a full pallet of
80 rolls, or even more!
We can supply larger quantities for landscaping and green roofing.

Please contact us for details of our special roofing turf & roofing turf with sedum added.
We use a 50:50 mix of wildflower and grass seed so that you get a high proportion of flowers. All seeds used are, of course, from native stock. The grasses used
in the turf form a dense sward which acts as a weed blanket, giving the wildflower plants a head start against outside competition, and have been chosen to
complement rather than overwhelm the flowers.
Because Wildflower Turf is grown on a plastic base all the root development is contained within the turf itself, creating a good mat of roots. This gives it
great strength which in turn makes it easy to handle and lay. And because it hasn't been cut from topsoil it hasn't lost its roots, so it establishes itself
really quickly in your garden.
Maintenance, apart from watering it during establishment, is minimal... no weeding or fertilising should be necessary, just an annual cutting in autumn.
Wildflower turf can be grown using specific species to suit your requirements, and can be grown with a mesh included, so please
