Poppies, cornflowers and all those bright annuals aren't hay meadow flowers, they're 'weeds' of arable land and need tilled soil.
See what pansy says about different types of meadow. All our native wild flowers have their own niche in the system, one habitat won't suit all.
I'm off to East Ruston today but I'll see if I can dig up any of the old how to make a meadow threads later on
