Wildflowers Alternative Lawn Blend

  • Low growing dense ground cover
  • Excellent alternative to traditional lawns
  • Looks spectacular in large plantings
  • 14 species of fescues, flowers and clovers
  • 125g covers approx. 16m² (180 square feet)

Composed of fourteen species of fine fescues, flowers, and clovers to form a low-growing, dense ground cover to quickly fill in spaces and provide colour and forage for pollinators. This low maintenance wildflower blend is an excellent alternative to traditional lawns, and looks spectacular in large plantings. Each re-sealable bag contains 25g of our Alternative Lawn Blend, plus fine vermiculite and 4-4-4 organic fertilizer to provide even spreading. Each bag of Alternative Lawn wildflower seeds covers approximately 16m square. Clear an area for planting by removing any foliage or existing lawn. Then loosen the surface of the soil with a light raking. Sprinkle the contents of this packet over the area and keep it watered until the seeds sprout. Plant flowers, not lawns!

Here is a list of the wildflower seeds in our Alternative Lawn Blend. These are short growing flowers, primarily annuals, that will form a carpet of diverse colours that changes with the seasons. From spring to late summer, the wildflowers in this blend put on a dazzling show, and feed bees and butterflies. Many of the Alternative Lawn wildflower seeds ingredients will self sow, returning year after year.
