How to sow wild flower seeds on grass

Chris Mason wrote (see)

This so what I have decided todo, I will rotivate the ground, I'll put out native grass seeds sparingly (I'll let them go to seed so they sow themselves thus saving me money) and I'll do as suggested and I'll grow the flowers indoors and put out once established. 

 

Native plants won't be happy indoors - grow them in pots outside in a sheltered area.

Good luck

Hopefully you've a colony of bats somewhere near you - they'll swoop low over your garden and catch them on summer nights

Is that decking above the damp course?  How has it been fixed?  Could that be causing a problem?

I think crab apples (malus) would work nicely

We had a similar query not long ago (but for SW France) - there were several suggestions made here http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/garden-design/tree-recommendations-for-my-site-please/621496.html but certainly malus was considered suitable, and could certainly be kept to the height you want.  If crab apples are happy in your area then I'd go for it!  Sounds a lovely idea

You will need evidence that it was your product that worked and not that the moles have packed up and moved elsewhere when food supplies in your garden were exhausted or conditions change - that's what they tend to do. 

Have you done trials in other gardens/parks/fields?

Good morning Bekkie and any/everyone else

Verdun was right - temps down to 1C overnight but back up to 8.3C already and rising.  The birds are singing in the garden.
