Wild Flower Calendar
August

Fresh Yellow Rattle Seed available - Fresh Yellow Rattle seed will be sent out from the end of July/beginning of August.  Fresh seed has a higher success rate than seed which has been dried for longer. Yellow Rattle is a useful plant to introduce when creating a wild flower meadow.  It is semi-parasitic on the roots of plants, especially grasses, & once established will reduce the vigour of the original grass by up to 50%. 

Most of the flowers from last month will continue - some of them for the rest of the summer, but many finishing this month.  Here are some August Wild Flowers that we currently stock seeds for - and depending on the time of year, plugs and bulbs.  Click on the photograph to buy seeds and  where plugs are also available they will be indicated on the seed catalogue pages.  

Dry Bulbs will be available from late August onwards and 'in the green' Bulbs from January next year, but there is a facility to pre-order them on our web pages under Native Bulbs.  

Pond Marginal plants can still be planted to get established before the autumn.  For more information on creating a native
 Wildlife Pond, click here.  

Warmer weather can lead to a growth of algae and blanket weed in your pond as the temperature of the water starts to rise and before the other plants in the pond have re-established after the Winter.  It will usually clear up within a few weeks, but if not, barley straw can be used to inhibit the growth of algae while the pond finds a natural balance see our Pond Pads which are made from barley straw and release natural compounds which inhibit the growth of algae in the pond water for about six months giving the pond a chance to establish a balance.  For more information on Algae & Blanket Weed Control, click here.
