Sowing rates for wildflower seeds and wildflower seed mixes

Q: What are the sowing rates for wildflower seeds and mixes ?

A: Grass and Wildflower seed mixes 4 grams per square metre or 16 Kgs per acre

100% wildflower seed mixtures 1 grams per square metre or 4 Kgs per acre

Cornfield annual seed mixes 2 grams per square metre or 8 Kgs per acre

Individual wild flower seeds 1 gram per square metre

Meadow grass seed mixes 5 grams per square metre or 20 Kgs per acre

The above are the recommended sowing rates which can occasionally be reduced to reduce costs, however it should be noted that this can leave the ground somewhat open to weed invasion and lengthen the establishment time.
