Corn flowers IMG_2547.jpg

Sites range from extended gardens to one hectare fields.

Our most successful seeds so far have been combinations of the following:

Flowers: Corn annuals such as corn poppies, corn marigold, cornflower, corncockle. Phacelia​ is added as a rich nectar source.


Perennial meadows: Heritage mixes appropriate to the soil and site conditions.

 

For guidance on establishing a  meadow see here.

Wild bird seed crops: Fodder radish, linseed, quinoa, buckwheat, millet, oats, barley. For details of planting regimes see Crops 2019.
