Rooftop Scatter Mix

About the Product:

Consider planting bulbs in the same way on roofs and combine this with the use of Wildflower Roof Turf. Fabulous results can be achieved using our carefully selected spring flowering rooftop mix. This is a low growing, small bulb size mix that will sit well within 100mm of substrate on a roof. It is early flowering, will withstand colder temperatures and provide plenty of colour before the growth of wildflower roof turf takes over in late April – May. Care must be taken when planting the bulbs into an existing green roof. Please follow the instructions to avoid puncturing the lining of the roof.

Specification

Maintenance

There is no further maintenance to the under planted wildflower area, other than the cut and removal of all plant material within the autumn months, strimmed or mown to an inch off the ground. Mowing at any other time will affect the bulbs and is therefore not advised. The dead plant material from the bulbs will be covered by the wildflowers until it is all removed during the Autumn cut.

Please click the link for further information on how to under plant bulbs and maintain them in a wildflower area.

Planting Times

Bulbs should be planted between September and December, ideally when the ground temperature is between 4-8°C.

Densities

For a naturalised effect we recommend planting 20 bulbs per m².

Planting Methods

If planting whilst laying turf, for a naturalised effect, bulbs should be scattered from waist height onto prepared soil (a light tilth) and then covered over with the turf. The turf provides adequate cover so no additional soil or dibbing is required. Bulb sizes are mid sized and care should be taken not to put too much heavy weight on to the turf, so as not to damage the bulbs underneath.

Delivery

When ordering with wildflower turf, bags or crates can be added on to the pallets of turf at little or no extra cost. When ordering bags or crates of bulbs separately, carriage will be charged at cost.
