Grass free lawn?

Posted: 14/09/2015 at 18:08

Nothing that grows is maintenance free

Your long list of plants includes many that will not thrive in the same situation.

Some that are too tall to be considered as lawn

and too many thugs that will take over the more refined elements

In short, a potential mess.

The list of plants looks similar to one we had posted here previously, is it a list from a commercial operation?

But as Welshonion  said, they have a very short season, as most irises do, maybe all, and no second flowering.

I'd sow them in a pot now and leave them outside

They germinate all around my garden with little regard for soil moisture and have been known to flower on a dry bank. They are not difficult. They also spread like mad and within a few years will make a bid for world domination

I sow them in spring, they're very quick to germinate and to flower

When to sow wild flowers

Some of each Thirtybyseven

But make sure they're native wildflowers. Some of the wildflower mixes come from warmer areas. They'd probably germinate and die in winter or rot before germination
