Planting a small meadow

Posted: 29/03/2017 at 08:29

Those are easy plants and reproduce themselves. Cowslips and primroses seed themselves into grass but I wouldn't try and start them by seed in grass, get a couple of plants to start. Seed is a bit hit and miss in grass, except Yellow Rattle which you can sow in grass in autumn, germinates in spring and is semi parasitic on grass, reducing its vigour. Has to be seen to be believed.

One thing you can't do in grass is have one of those bright coloured annual mixes, poppies, cornflowers etc. Those are plants for cultivated soil, they don't grow in grass

That's nice, I can see primroses and red campion in the shade of the trees and maybe some cowslips

there are wildflowers for every position.

What sort of meadow are you thinking of and which flowers would you like to see?

Thanks Richard, mandshurica will be planted.

Diamond Anniversary offspring seems pretty robust as well

it's a cyclamen. Couldn't say which species but it doesn't look like one of the UK hardy ones

Last year generous forum member Richard Hodson shared lots of his clematis seeds with us

This is the story so far with mine. I have one set that hasn't germinated yet, but as the last but one has only recently germinated I'm still hopeful.

Thank you Richard

Has anyone else got any photos?

What is this please
