There has been a rapid rise in the popularity of the decorative flora mixtures over the last couple of years. These low maintenance flower seed mixtures have added colour and brightness to many amenity areas including parks, roundabouts, golf courses, and countless roadside verges, and it has been this versatility that has allowed such mixtures to be introduced to domestic dwellings.
Many mixtures last more than a year, flowering from mid-June to mid-October, containing many plant varieties, selected for their ability to attract bees and insects and give ground coverage for small animals such as hedgehogs. The various mixtures contain annuals, bi-annuals and perennials, giving a robust, but equally aesthetic pleasing appearance, and even come the autumn and winter certain plants as they die back will allow for plentiful seeds for the birds to feed.
So by incorporating a flora mixture into an area of the garden will give many environmental benefits, as well as adding a cost effective and low maintenance splash of colour for a large part of the year.
Benefits of introducing a flora seed mixture to your garden include:
- Low maintenance and cost effective
- Splash of colour throughout the summer months
- Pollination for bees and insects
- Winter feed for the birds
