Sun. 7-30 cm Flowers May – July. Slows the growth of grass down substantially allowing both greater quantity and variety of wildflowers when used within a meadow. Plants are supplied from the start of April onwards, however seed is available all year round.

Plugs are best planted in groups of 3 after mowing grass short at least 5 per Sq meter; please do not remove the grass out of the plugs. Ensure plugs are well firmed in. It is always better to plant directly into the ground and not pot on.
