The mixture is a combination of garden flowers, wild flowers and herbs typical of what would be seen in gardens in Victorian times.
An interesting combination of colourful, well known cultivated flowers, wild flowers and herbs.
The mixture contains plants of mixed height and flowering periods intended to create a permanent ornamental bed. The combination of plants is typical of what would have been growing in a Victorian cottage garden. After the first year, the annual and biennial flowers will have to be re-introduced into the bed each year to ensure that a succession of the species is maintained. It is possible to let the annuals and biennials go to seed, lift them when they have died back and shake them over the area to distribute the seed, remove all grass and weed from the area, then lightly rake the area.
