Teaser: This 'no-maintenance' mixture requires no fertilizer!
Description:

This 'no-maintenance' mixture requires no fertilizer, survives with little moisture even in the driest part of summer and tolerates sub-standard soil too! Sow seed very shallow as it requires light for germination and keep the soil moist until foliage is obvious. Thrives without care once established and will even tolerate mowing! This is not a lawn grass mixture, rather it is a very drought tolerant blend of two perennial ground covers. Both species are hardy to Zone 4.

 

Contains: 25% Yarrow (Achillea millefolium), 75% White Clover (Trifolium repens).

 

1kg covers 360 sq. m. (2.2lbs covers 3900 sq. ft.)

  • 1kg $78.00

How To Grow Sow seed late April through mid May. Rake the area to be planted vigorously to remove debris and accumulated thatch. Add top soil to fill in any low spots. Sow seed at a rate of 1 kg per 300 sq. m.(2.2 lbs per 3300 sq. ft.) Apply twice at half rate over the area in a criss-cross pattern. Leave seed where it falls without covering as light is necessary for germination. Water with a fine spray for two or three weeks to keep the seedbed moist during the germination period.
