Bees & Butterflies Summer Scatter Mix

This colourful bulb mix works beautifully with both the more subtle native wildflower Landscape 34 turf and the more colourful Native Enriched Turf.

The bulbs have been selected specifically for their appeal to both bees and butterflies and is a wonderful top up within a wildflower nectar bar during the summer months.

This selection of bulbs starts to flower in May through to August and all will grow to a substantial height that sees their flowers at the same level or slightly above the main flowering layer of the turf at that time. The tall straight stems provide an interesting structural perspective against the more wispy nature of the wildflowers and provides a lovely design juxtaposition for artistic landscapes. This selection of bulbs will also work in conjunction with the Spring scatter mixes and ideally you could lay both types together for a succession of structure and colour.

Please note these bulbs are AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE AND INSTALL SEPTEMBER TO DECEMBER.

Naturalising Spring Scatter Mix

This mix has been specifically chosen to mirror the classic naturalised spring bulbs that are seen up and down the country.

With a mix of scilla, chionodoxa, fritillary and narcissi, the colour palette is ‘Cool Spring’, with a mix of creams, pale blues and purples and works particularly well with our Landscape Turf and Shade Tolerant Turf. The bulbs will provide flowers from February to late April and are suitable for sunny and part shade areas.

Rooftop Scatter Mix

Consider planting bulbs in the same way on roofs and combine this with the use of Wildflower Roof Turf.

Fabulous results can be achieved using our carefully selected spring flowering rooftop mix. This is a low growing, small bulb size mix that will sit well within 100mm of substrate on a roof. It is early flowering, will withstand colder temperatures and provide plenty of colour before the growth of wildflower roof turf takes over in late April – May. Care must be taken when planting the bulbs into an existing green roof. Please follow the instructions to avoid puncturing the lining of the roof.

Shade Tolerant Bulbs

With the success of our shade tolerant turf and earth mixes we are pleased to be able to provide a naturalising selection of spring bulbs that will thrive in shaded meadows.

The colour palette is describe as cool spring, with pale blues, whites and lemons. The mix of bulbs has been chosen to grow at a low level, flowering from February to May, ending as the wildflowers take over. Planting in clumps rather than evenly dispersed will provide a natural spring woodland look.

Vibrant Spring Scatter Mix

This mix has been specifically chosen for the fabulous colour combination to bring wildflower borders to life earlier in the year.

We believe this mix will be particularly useful if you are creating an area that frames a lawn or is in an area of public use. This lovely selection of bulbs has been chosen with consideration to their height, colour and flowering time to provide impact and drama and are a perfect accompaniment to our Wildflower Landscape Turf and Native Enriched Turf. Tulips, narcissi and crocus are bold choices but never disappoint with their instant cheer.

Why Choose Wildflower Turf?

Changing colours throughout the year can be achieved with Wildflower Turf allowing for the creation of stunning wildflower meadows. The flowers in the turf mixes have been carefully chosen to produce flowering plants from early in the spring through to the middle of the autumn.

The grasses in the mix are native to the British Isles and are chosen to complement the flowers and not to compete with them, which is a common problem with conventional “wildflower plugs” or wildflower seeding. This allows the flowers to succeed rather than be swamped by the grasses, which is a common problem with conventional soil based Wildflower Turf or most wildflower seeding. The grasses are visually attractive while they seed, alongside the wildflowers, and the combination provides a food source for birds and a favourable habitat for butterflies and other insects.
