Meadowmat Woodland Shade

Woodland Shade Meadowmat® is a blend of 35 native wildflowers and 3 grasses typically found growing in woodland margins and hedgerows.

Ideal for those tricky spots in the garden where many garden flowers flounder. Please bear in mind though that Woodland Shade cannot tolerate really deep shade. Dappled shade is OK but it definitely won’t thrive where the sun never shines. Woodland Shade will bring a splash of colour and serenity into your life alongside the knowledge that you are providing valuable wildlife habitat.

Garden design tip: Install Woodland Shade over the top of spring flowering bulbs such as snowdrops, crocus, native daffodils and fritillaries for extra colour. Because the area won’t be mown until much later in the year, you won’t notice when the bulb foliage starts to wither and discolour.

Key Points

  • All but one of the plant species in Woodland Shade Meadowmat® are perennial. That means that you will be enjoy them every year without replanting or reseeding……provided of course they are enjoying the conditions in your garden!
  • Flowering Time: April – October (depending on local weather conditions) with the strongest flush of flowers in late Spring.
  • To protect your plants, Meadowmat® is mown before despatch. It will not be in flower when it is delivered.
  • Although any type of Meadowmat® can be installed at any time of year, Autumn is a great time of year to install Woodland Shade. That way the plants can root in over winter and be ready to bloom in early spring.
  • Each piece of Woodland Shade will cover 1 square metre of prepared soil. With a saturated weight of up to 20Kg/m2, it’s definitely better for Meadowmat® to be handled by two people than by a lone gardener.
  • Be prepared to be amazed! Meadowmat® actually changes appearance every year. Each plant species in the seed-mix responds differently to weather and of course we get different weather every year. You will never be bored!

What is Meadowmat® ?

Meadowmat® is a modern landscaping material especially developed to help UK gardeners establish biodiverse planting areas quickly and easily. Plants are grown from seed onto a thin layer of growing medium where their roots intertwine to form a strong mat. The mat can be rolled up (without damaging roots or plants) to allow this blanket of plants to be transported and re-laid.

Woodland Shade asks for a largely hands-off and rather eco-friendly style of gardening. So, there’s no need for fertilisers and sprays, these plants are self-sufficient. Then, leave to grow unchecked between February and August. The biggest burst of the flowers will appear in May followed by smatterings of colour through Summer. At the end of Summer, use a scythe to take off the vegetation – leave just 10 – 15 cm to re-grow and take away all of the trimmings. Then, mow once or twice in Autumn to remove excess growth and let it overwinter. If you are growing Woodland Shade under trees, please remove fallen leaves in Autumn.

You’ll find installation and maintenance guidance in the blog and the knowledgebase sections of our website.

Finding the right place to grow Meadowmat Woodland Shade

Woodland Shade prefers to grow in partial shade and moist, but well drained low fertility soil. Please avoid deep shade – the plants do need some daylight in order to thrive. Happiest in a fairly neutral pH but will tolerate all but the most acidic or alkaline soils.

To get the best from your Meadowmat®, install onto our Low Fertility Soil. This helps to regulate the growth of the grasses so that the flowering plants can thrive.

Order enough and then some - With the season on the point of kicking off – although there was snow this morning - we have had a spate of enquiries and orders recently for turf and wildflower turf. This is a good thing, but I think I should add in a bit of advice. Firstly, please, please, please measure very carefully. Make sure that you have added in at least 5% extra to cover all the edges and extra bits that you will need. Our website has a turf calculator to help you work out exactly how much you will need. BUT, and it’s a big BUT – please remember that it is always better to have some turf left over rather than having to order more. Our turf is delivered on pallets so having to order extra turf as a new order will mean new harvest, new transport and a new delivery cost. Adding an extra roll of turf to your order to make sure you have enough is always going to be cheaper than having to order more. Adding an extra roll is always going to be more cost-effective. Otherwise, all the usual rules apply – please lay your turf on the day it arrives. If you’re working with wildflower turf, it’s a lot easier with two people and please focus on watering once your turf is down. Wee can help with all of these – there are tools here on the website to help along with advice on looking after your new lawn or Meadowmat wildflower meadow.
Some of our Wildflower products do contain a Biodegradable reinforcement net for stability.
Can you take my pallet away? Unfortunately not - please can you reuse or recycle.
What time will my delivery be made? The anytime service can be delivered between 8am and 8pm. There are a number of upgrade options available at the checkout.
Bulky items like Turf, Topsoil and Wildflower Turf can be delivered Tuesday to Friday. We can also offer deliveries on Saturdays for an additional charge. For orders placed before 10am we can even offer a next day delivery. Please select your preferred delivery date from the available dates during the checkout process. This is dependent on the delivery postcode.
What delivery services do you offer? - Standard all day delivery is included in the price for most areas of the UK. There are surcharges for some areas and options to upgrade to timed services for an additional cost.
We offer kerbside delivery, so pallets are usually left on the road to the front of your property. We can occasionally deliver to your driveway if it is flat, level and a solid surface, and if the kerb is dropped enough for a pallet truck to roll over it whilst fully loaded.
How tall does Meadowmat grow? - This depends on the variety. A flowering height of 30-90cm is common. All of our wildflower products are trimmed prior to despatch to protect the plants from damage in transit. The height at despatch is approximately 10cm. For more information about specific varieties visit the product page on our website.

Your Delivery

Turf Online aims to give its customers the best possible experience by delivering the best quality products for sale in the UK. Therefore, all our perishable products are harvested fresh to order the day before delivery, and we even accept orders for next-day delivery!

Delivery charges and services vary by different types of turf and delivery location. Charges are confirmed at checkout before payment. If your order includes grass turf, topsoil, Wildflower Turf or Sedum mats, you can choose your delivery day. You should arrange for live products to be delivered on the day you will lay them. Reducing the amount of time the product is stored means significantly less potential nuisance when it comes to installation; certain issues will not have had a chance to rise. All other products are delivered within 5 working days (or usually sooner!).

How Is Your Product Delivered?

We recommend that you only make arrangements for tradespeople to carry out work on your behalf after your turf or other products have been delivered.

PLEASE NOTE: Turf, Wildflower Turf, Sedum Mats and bulk Bag products are delivered on a pallet and can only be delivered to the kerbside. 

Most of our products for sale in the UK will be delivered by being transported by a pallet courier that primarily uses 18-tonne rigid trucks that are built for reaching the majority of UK addresses. However, it is possible that your delivery could be made on a larger vehicle. If access or other restrictions prevent vehicles above a certain size reaching your address, or there are other offloading or parking restrictions which could affect the delivery, let us know in the delivery notes section of checkout so that special delivery arrangements can be made. Please make sure you double check the delivery postcode and address carefully as after your order has been shipped, it is likely we will not be able to make any amendments to your order or address.

Delivery is unloaded using a manual pallet trolley which is lowered to the road by the tail lift on the truck. Unfortunately, we do not offer Hiab (truck-mounted crane) deliveries. To offload the pallet, the surface must be flat and level. Since Turf, Wildflower Turf, Sedum and topsoil can be heavy, and the pallet trolley pulled by the driver has small wheels, pallets cannot be delivered onto soil, grass or gravel – a tarmac or paved surface is required.

Kerbside delivery means that our products for sale in the UK is delivered as close as possible to the delivery address you provide. Our helpful drivers will do their best to place your delivery where you wish, such as a driveway, but this is at their discretion. If your delivery address is hard to find or the property is a new build, consider using what3words to pinpoint your delivery location. More information on what3words can be found in our Help Centre.

For more information on how The Pallet Network delivers our different types of products, please watch this short video.

What Issues Could Arise With Delivery?

If your product delivery cannot be made due to a reason you failed to make us aware of, the full cost of distribution and products will still be charged to you. We are proud that most of our turf deliveries arrive on time. Sometimes, circumstances beyond our control (extreme weather, road accidents, vehicle breakdowns or IT failures) can delay delivery, but we will make every effort to keep you updated in such an event.
