Wildflower mats

Would it not be cheaper to buy seeds of the wildflower plants you want and sow them in trays of compost?  They will not need to be in the greenhouse.

When they germinate cut the compost into squares and plant those randomly where you want them.

Why do you want to get rid of them?  They certainly fit the description of mixed hedging.

You do know they are the Witch's Tree and there is a lot of folklore attached to them?
