Cornfield annuals, once a common feature of traditional farming areas, have largely disappeared from their former habitat. This mixture can be used to re-create those areas and gives an outstanding display of colour in its first year, either sown on its own or to supplement a mixture of perennial species which are slower to establish.

To produce a display of cornfield annual every year, a reseeding programme should be implemented to build up a seed bank. After several years there will be enough seed to be regenerated by soil disturbance.

Mixture breakdown

  • 35.0% Corncockle (Agrostemma githago)
  • 27.5% Corn Poppy (Papaver rhoeas)
  • 20.0% Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus)
  • 5.0% Common Vetch (Vicia sativa)
  • 12.5% Corn Chamomile (Anthemis arvensis)
