An increasing number of companies offer wildflower turf, which comes on short rolls in the same way as conventional grass turf. It can be a useful alternative to seed sowing on ground which is high in weed seeds or where speedy establishment/flowering is needed. Higher costs usually means it it only suitable for small scale wildflower projects. Choice of wildflower mix will also be more limited.
It is now possible to source wildflower turf grown on a plastic-free felt base - other suppliers may use a plastic mesh to help reinforce the turf.
Prepare the ground in the same way as for grass turf, omitting the fertiliser. Although it is possible to lay wildflower turf year round, spring is usually the best time. Keep well watered in the first summer.
