Wildflower Soil Service

Perfect for establishing a wildflower meadow

Establishing an area for wildflowers or an entire meadow is an excellent way of supporting and encouraging nature. The primary factor to establishing a meadow is to know your soil type. Wildflowers differ across the country and this often relates to the soil where they grow. Selecting wildflower seeds that would not naturally grow on your soil type presents you with an uphill struggle you are unlikely to win. Take a look at our blog on creating a wildflower meadow.

 

This soil analysis package is perfect for:

  • discovering your soil's specific type and fertility to establish a wildflower meadow

  • identify which wildflower seed mix is suitable for your soil

  • finding out how best to lower your soil's fertility to maximise wildflower diversity

This Service includes:

Soil pH

Determines level of soil acidity, which governs nutrient availability to plants.

Soil texture

Proportion of sand-, silt- & clay-sized particles. This information significantly aids cultivation.

Organic matter

The amount of organic matter in a soil provides many benefits to soil heath & cultivation.

Phosphorus (P)

Vital nutrient for leaf & root growth, insufficient stunts plant growth.

Potassium (K)

Essential nutrient-short supply affects many plant functions, but excess alters the root’s ability to take up other nutrients.

Magnesium (Mg)

Important for the green plant pigment, chlorophyll. Helps the uptake of soil phosphorus. Excess potassium causes magnesium deficiency.
