Meadow Mat is hand harvested in 50cm x 200cm rolls
Meadow Mat can be laid at any time of year, but it must be noted that if laying in the winter the mat will look like it is just a weedy turf, this will transform in the spring into wild flowers.
Meadow Mat Wild flowers meadows can grow up to in excess of 2 foot tall through the summer months.
Wild flower meadows require poor soils with low fertility, if grown on fertile soils the grasses will eventually out grow the slower growing wild flowers, smothering them and resulting in fewer wild flowers.
For this reason no fertilisers should be used and where the soils is suspected of being fertile, we would recommend removal of the soil and replacing with a low fertility soil.
Wild flower meadows should only be mown once per year, at the end of the winter / start of spring. for best results mow using a strimmer or flymo leaving the mowings on the ground to rot in, seeds will then be self sown to provide new wild flower growth for the coming summer.
