Dreaming of a display of colourful wildflowers? Floral Focus Meadowmat has 41 different flowering species in the seedmix and no grass, it’s a cacophony of colour.
A truly colourful blend of wildflower species that will be irresistible to butterflies, bees, moths and hoverflies. Floral Focus is pollinator paradise and when in full bloom, it is a truly joyous mix of vibrant colours. As an added bonus, most of the plant species are perennial. If they love your garden they’ll repeat the performance year after year after year.
We’ve developed a more advanced growing system for this Meadowmat variety to allow us to leave all of the grasses out of the seedmix. Standard Meadowmat varieties rely on the roots of grass plants to form the matting system. For Floral Focus we’ve introduced a biodegradeable coir backing fabric so that your wildflower area is super easy for us to transport and for you to install. In truth, it was developed for green roofing applications. However, we think you’ll love it as a garden feature too.
Great for insects and even better for gardeners!
Floral Focus Meadowmat is grown outdoors on a wildlife friendly plant nursery. We actively encourage birds, insects and other creatures to share the benefits of the plants as they grow. Pesticides and Weedkillers are not usually used in production.
That means that whilst there is no grass sown in our Floral Focus Meadowmat, from time to time, seeds will be dropped by birds. We weed out any that we see but occasionally one or two will be missed. Floral Focus Meadowmat may not be entirely grass free. The good news is that the growing medium we use makes it very easy to pluck out any unwanted plants that you see.

When your Floral Focus Meadowmat arrives, it will have at least 90% plant coverage. All you need to do is to lay it on top of prepared soil (or green roof substrate) and water it in. The growing medium needs to be kept damp until plants are fully established.
Floral Focus Meadowmat has a very short shelf life. It MUST be unrolled as soon as your delivery arrives, especially in hot weather.
Annual maintenance couldn’t be easier. Allow the plants to grow, flower and set seed over the spring and summer period. When plants look dry, stalky and sad, use a sharp blade to cut them down to about 10cm high. Give the spent vegetation a good shake to let seeds fall back into the sward and then pop it on the compost heap. Your Meadowmat will regenerate through the winter months and start growing again in spring. Any unwanted plants can be pulled or dug out.
For roof applications only, apply a suitable slow release feed in early spring. The Turfonline team recommends Enviromat Sedum Fertiliser Floral Focus Meadowmat in the garden is very self sufficient and shouldn’t need feeding at all.
