    The collection contains:
    charlock – Synapses alba
    cornflower – Centaurea cyanus
    corn Chamomile – Anthemis arvensis
    corn Marigold – Chrysanthemum segetum
    field forget-me-not – Myosotis arvensis
    field poppy – Papaver rhoeas
    white campion – Silene latifolia

  • Garden care: Rake the soil well to form a fine tilth and then sow seeds, scattering them evenly before raking them in and firming down. Keep them well watered initially and remove any weeds if they appear. Wildflowers prefer poor soils so avoid using fertilisers. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering, and in autumn, after the plants have spread their seed, cut them down to the ground before adding to the compost bin.

  • Sow: March - May or September - October

  • Flowering: August - September or May - July
