Mix 19 is 20% Cornfield flowers & 80% Grass Mix. Nothing can match the breathtaking display of colour and interest that can be obtained by sowing a cornfield annual mixture. The showy cornfield annuals are now a relative rarity in the wild due to 'advances' in crop weed control. We recommend preparing a settled seedbed preferably on a poor soil and always in full sun some time before sowing of cornfield annuals which will allow for a flush of annual weeds, which should then be destroyed by shallow cultivation or spraying prior to sowing - ideally from mid August to mid October. Sowing of cornfield annuals in spring from early March means that the resulting plants will be smaller and flower later than from an autumn sowing, but will be no less colourful.
When creating this mix of flowers (Cornfield Flowers, Cornflower, Corn Marigold, Corn Cockle, Corn Chamomile, Corn Poppy, Sainfoin & Birdsfoot) and adding them to the grasses (Chewings Fescue, Slender Creeping Frescue, Timothy, Common Bentgrass, Creeping Red Fescue & Smooth Meadow) our aim is to give you a beatiful meadow which is loved by humans and insects alike.

Seed rate of our cornfield mix 5g per square meter. Scatter the seeds onto prepared level ground, lightly rake in and firm the soil if loose by treading. These and other annual species are the only ones we would recommend sowing in their final flowering positions. They are extremely easy to grow. In theory, with cornfield annuals, if the ground is cultivated again after seed is shed the seed will grow again for the next year and the process can be repeated indefinitely. In practice however, other annual weed seeds tend to build up and/or the cornfield mix becomes unbalanced, often dominated by the early germinating and strong growing corncockle.
To perpetuate a cornfield annual mix on the same site we believe it is best to collect seed from the various species and dig or plough over the site prior to re-sowing a prepared mixture. Plants of Bearded Wheat and Barley can be included with the cornfield annuals to reproduce an authentic wild cornfield feature. These crop plants add interest and serve an important role in actually supporting the flowering plants. Sow August- September or April -May
