BFS 12 – Green Roof Wildflower Seed Mix

£60.37£339.00 inc VAT

This specially formulated seed mix contains a very high percentage of drought tolerant wildflower species (85%). Having only 3 species (15%) of attractive and slow growing grasses there is a very necessary reduction in maintenance and it looks pretty too!

We consider that this mixture consists of a more suitable ratio of grass to wildflowers for green roofs. The grasses are all slow growing – this again reduces the amount of maintenance required. The overall effect is a green roof that is much more picturesque and easy to look after with added benefits for insect life too!

Sowing Rate: 2g/m²
Contains: Wildflowers 85% (21 species) Grasses 15% (3 species)

N.B: All seeds specified in this mixture are subject to availability at the time of purchase.

Description

A highly diverse seed mix developed for biodiverse green roofs in urban and countryside environments. It contains 25 UK native wildflowers, grasses and sedum to comply with BREEAM requirements.

The mix provides foraging habitat for invertebrates and birds. Flowers such as viper’s bugloss and bird’s-foot trefoil with long flowering period will attract bumblebee species and plantain and knapweed species provide seeds for birds.  It is suitable for lightweight recycled crushed brick green roof substrates. This sward due to the low fertility and dry environment should require very little maintenance except controlling pernicious weeds that arrive naturally such as buddleia. This seed mix does contain stonecrops which provide cover during extended periods of drought and provide habitat for notable invertebrates.
