      WF10 Cornflower Annuals

      A mixture for recreating the colour of cornfield annuals, once a feature of traditional farming areas.

      Ideal for sowing on its own or supplementing perennial mixtures that are slower to establish.

      Cornfield annuals, once a common feature of traditional farming areas, have largely disappeared from their former habitat.

      This mixture can be used to recreate those areas and give an outstanding display of colour in its first year, either sown on its own or to supplement a mixture of perennial species which are slower to establish.

      To produce a display of cornfield annual every year, a reseeding programme should be implemented to build up a seed bank. After several years there will be enough seed to be regenerated by soil disturbance.

      If sown from late March to late May then assuming adequate moisture and warmth this mix should flower after 60-80 days. Supplementing many of our standard grass and wildflower mixtures with annuals is a good way of providing first season colour to wildflower sowings that have to be done from March to June.
