Slows the growth of wildflower meadow grass and other vigorous grasses down substantially allowing both greater quantity and variety of wild flowers when used within a meadow.
Plants are supplied from the start of April on wards, however yellow rattle seed is available all year round. Yellow rattle plants are an annual root hemi-parasite that require grass to grow. The plant plugs here come supplied with fescues within the plug cells as host plant grasses. Yellow flowers, seeds rattle in inflated seed pods, hence the name ‘rattle’.
Plugs are best planted in groups of 3 after mowing grass. Please do not remove the grass out of the plugs. Ensure plugs are well firmed into soil surface. It is always better to plant directly into the ground and not pot on.
