Meadowmat Species Rich Seed Mix – A lawn created with Meadowmat® Species Rich seed will be hardwearing, incredibly easy to care for and a real asset to biodiversity.
We’ve blended 12 species of slow growing grasses with 23 types of colourful pollinator-friendly native perennial plants. The result is a multi-coloured carpet of plants just right for relaxing or playing on.
Meadowmat® Species Rich only needs mowing every other week. But it won’t grow to much more than ankle height. So, it’s specially designed for a relaxed maintenance regime so you can happily leave it while you take a holiday. Or, if you work in an organisation where landscape maintenance budgets are tight – think how much money you could save by mowing less often!
The specially selected grasses ensure full coverage all year round – even in winter time when the flowering plants are asleep. As for hot dry summers, Meadowmat® Species Rich will keep its colour for longer than a standard grass lawn and will recover from drought much quicker.
Unlike most types of wildflower turf , Species Rich can tolerate slightly more nutrient rich soils. Please keep your new lawn watered until the roots are well established.
- Dig over the area and thoroughly rake to remove any debris and create a fine tilth. If your garden soil is rich in nutrients, remove as much of it as you can and replace it with low nutrient topsoil.
- Sow the seeds where you want them to grow. The recommended rate for Meadowmat wildflower seed is 30g/m². Sprinkle the seed as evenly as possible being careful not to sow seeds too thickly – the plants will need plenty of room to grow.
- Newly sown wildflower seed needs light and water to germinate. Do not cover the seed. Water lightly – be careful not to wash them away! Protect from birds. For best results, keep the soil and seeds moist until the plants have germinated and are well established.
- Contains Rehofix bulking granules to ensure even sowing.
- Shake well before use.
Don’t have time to wait for it to grow?

The actual percentage of each species contained may vary due to environmental factors. Turfonline makes every effort to ensure wildflower products are free from weeds and pests, however due to the natural way in which these products are grown we cannot guarantee they are 100% pest free on delivery. It is unlikely that you will see every species that is listed. The variation of species present has been developed to suit a wide variety of soils and environmental conditions. This will result in a product that will adapt to individual settings which may mean some species are more successful than others. Contains annual and perennial species. If installed after March many species may not flower during the first year.
