Successful wildflower establishment is dependent on rapid and robust seedling growth. A newly released time-lapse video, produced by Wildflower Turf Ltd using the innovative Wildflower Earth™ growing medium, shows just how little ground preparation is needed in order to achieve a fast growing, attractive and bio-diverse wildflower establishment.
The practical, hands-on video was shot over a period of 18 weeks at Overton in Hampshire. The step-by-step approach, condensed down to a mere five minutes of time-lapse viewing, covers site preparation, growing medium application, seedling emergence, and plant establishment.
Managing Director of Wildflower Turf, James Hewetson-Brown, says he is delighted by the response to the company’s time-lapse endeavour.
“We created the time-lapse video to provide a very visual guide in terms of just how easy the application of the Wildflower Earth™ product is, and also to show what can be expected aesthetically from the resulting wildflower meadow. With limited site preparation required, and by using a pre-mixed medium, the results are considerably better than conventional methods of seeding wildflowers.”
Wildflower Earth™ is an extensively tested, seed-based premium growing medium that provides low risk, guaranteed results and, as the time-lapse video shows, requires considerably less investment in ground preparation, saving time and machinery costs.
Practical for both private and public locations (although only sold via trade customers currently), Wildflower Earth™ is particularly suited to large sites where instant plant coverage is not required. Available in a number of product variants (WF-Earth-Border-49 is shown in the video), Wildflower Earth™ is also available as a bespoke mix, providing maximum flexibility.
