NCA1 Standard Cornfield Annuals Mix

NCA1 Standard Cornfield Annuals Mix

A mix of 5 native annual wildflower species. NCA1 is best sown either on its own or included as part of a perennial wildflower meadow mix, to give some colour in the first year while the perennial species become established. When sowing alone the soil will need to be disturbed each Autumn to produce a flowering the following season. Once a common sight in the cornfields of the UK, these vibrant flowers were driven from the fields through advances in herbicides. Some of the easiest wildflowers to grow, providing a vivid riot of colour in the early summer. Unlike most wildflowers, the species in this mix will tolerate soils of high fertility.

Mix is 100% Wildflower seeds.

Sowing rate if sown alone: 2g per square metre, 8Kg per acre, 20kg per hectare

Sowing rate if sown with a perennial wildflower mix: 1g per square metre, 4Kg per acre, 10Kg per hectare

Naturescape offer bare root pond plants for sale over the internet - potted plants are available at the visitor centre. Pond plants are best introduced during their most active growth period which commences in late May / early June, although we endeavour to offer the plants year round.

Generally speaking, the vast majority of plants are at their best from July to Spetember - with the exception of marsh marigold and water hawthorn which flower in early Spring. On receipt of your bare root pond plants, they should be planted into the soil of a natural pond. In a lined or plastic pond, put plants into baskets (which can be supplied with your order) ideally filling with a clay loam. For most marginal plants (pond edge), we recommend planting into baskets of 1litre, or 2litres for specimen plants. Dwarf lilies are also planted in 2 litre pots, large lilies should be planted in 5 - 10 litre pots.

Naturescape specialises in creating native wildlife ponds etc. - please contact us for further information Before you proceed to pond plant catalogue page, we recommend you print out the above diagram - each hydrosere has a letter associated with it - know as a zone. In the catalogue description of the plants we sell, there is a corresponding letter to the zone or zones that are most appropriate for that plant
