"There's no quicker and easier way to create a wildflower meadow"

Wildflower Meadow Turf
Supplier for winning show gardens, including Gardeners' World Live, NEC 2017
Garden designer Claudia de Yong won a gold medal and Best in Show for her ‘Romance in the Ruins’ garden featuring our wildflower meadow turf at BBC Gardeners’ World Live 2017.

The design, inspired by the medieval Beeston Castle in Cheshire, featured ivy-wrapped crumbling turrets with water cascading into a pond, roses rambling up the side of pergolas, our wildflower turf and other elements creating a dreamy sense of ancient disrepair.

We were absolutely delighted to be able to supply the wildflower turf for this and many other winning Show Gardens over the years, including RHS Chelsea. It was also used in the London Olympics in 2012 and produced a fantastic display, as always.

If you want a wildflower meadow, there's no simpler or easier way to get an almost instant result, without breaking your back.
If you would love a traditional wildflower meadow in your garden, but are worried about the uncertainty of seeding (it is often a major disappointment, even if you do everything 'right'), then wildflower meadow turf is what you need.

Yes, it's a lot more expensive initially, but you get a fantastic wildflower meadow THIS YEAR, instead of waiting 3-4 years for a disappointing result, and in the long run it actually works out cheaper as you don't have to deal with the weeds.

This is why the people who make the show gardens at RHS Chelsea, Gardeners' World Live, etc. buy this stuff from us - it is an easy way to get a great result, quickly. It was also used in the London Olympics in 2012!

If you're still not convinced, feel free to order some wildflower meadow seed mix, and I really hope it works for you, but if your ground is anything other than perfect for seeding, I would urge you to consider this fantastic wildflower turf.

It's what we've used for our wildflower meadow in the orchard outside the Cottage here at WCS HQ.

One of the best things about creating a meadow using our wildflower meadow turf is that you get a very low maintenance habitat that's great for wildlife with minimal effort. I'd call that a win-win-win.

There are many advantages to wildflower meadows: they cover the ground in a beautiful mix of wildflowers and grasses; they provide a banquet of nectar and pollen for bees and butterflies, and many other insects; and they just make you feel good while you're looking at them.

Importantly, it's not just flowers for nectar feeders, but also native grasses which are food-plants for some of our moths, which are generally declining, like many of our butterflies and other insects.

We can't think of an easier way to convert an area of your garden into a wildflower meadow! Once you've cleared the ground you just need to roll out the turf, water it from time to time, then sit back and watch it grow! You can even use it on a green roof for a really dramatic effect.
The native flower seeds mixed into the turf will give you wildflowers from early spring right through to autumn which will provide a fantastic habitat for birds, butterflies and other insects. Whilst you're waiting for your turf to bloom you can easily add a few plug plants to it or even plant bulbs underneath it.

And it doesn't matter how large or small an area you want to convert... our Wildflower Turf is supplied in easy to use rolls, each roll covering approximately 0.64 square metres. The actual roll size is 64cm wide by 1m long. So, you can order just as much as you need, from four rolls to a full pallet of 80 rolls, or even more!

I can promise you this: you won't regret it.
The turf is made up of 34 UK native wildflowers and grasses, minimum 75% wildflowers.  All seeds used are, of course, from native stock. The grasses used in the turf form a dense sward which acts as a weed blanket, giving the wildflower plants a head start against outside competition, and have been chosen to complement rather than overwhelm the flowers.

Because our wildflower turf is grown on a plastic base, all the root development is contained within the turf itself, creating a good mat of roots. This gives it great strength which in turn makes it easy to handle and lay. And because it hasn't been cut from topsoil it hasn't lost its roots, so it establishes itself really quickly in your garden (occasionally, our soil-less turf may be unavailable, in which case we will supply an alternative).

Maintenance, apart from watering it during establishment, is minimal... no weeding or fertilising should be necessary, just an annual cutting in autumn.

Wildflower turf can be grown using specific species to suit your requirements, so please contact us with your requirements.
