“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant”- Anne Bradstreet

Winter wildflower meadow maintenance – In winter time, the wildflower meadow largely looks after itself. There is very little for you to do.

DO NOT WALK OVER YOUR MEADOW ON FROSTY DAYS! You risk damaging the plants

  • Mowing. If the weather is mild and the grasses keep growing, a light mow won’t do any harm. Be careful not to scalp the plants – the optimum height of meadow vegetation in winter is 10-15cm (4-6 inches). If you do mow, be sure to remove all clippings. Cut down seed heads and tidy up the vegetation in late winter/early spring.
  • Growing. You probably won’t see much growth at all during the winter months. Some species may even seem to disappear. Don’t worry, there’s a lot going on under the ground to prepare the roots and shoots for growth next spring.
  • Sowing. It’s OK to lay Meadowmat Wildflower Turf during the winter months, provided the ground isn’t frozen.
