Common Toadflax Wildflower Seed

Product Code: 130JC2820-pro

Common Toadflax Wildflower Seed​ is a member of the Scrophulariaceae family, originating from Europe (including Britain) and North Asia. It is common throughout England, Wales and Scotland, but much less so in Northern Scotland and Ireland. It is found on railway ballast, roadsides, field-borders and wasteland where the soil is light and free-draining. The plant has been used in the treatment of a variety of ailments in the past, including liver problems, jaundice and sores. It was also believed to have the power to help rid the body of toxins. The name 'Toadflax' derives from the resemblance between one of the individual flowers and a toad, with the 'mouth' of the flower looking like that of a toad. The 'flax' part recalls the similarity between the Flax plant and the young stems before they develop flowers.

Wildflower Site Preparation

The site should be weed free. Annual weeds should be controlled by mechanical means or by the use of contact based herbicide. Perennial weeds, for example docks thistle, nettles and couch grass can be dealt with using a translocated herbicide such as Round-Up. Cultivate to achieve a fine seed bed, sow seed mix and then roll to ensure firmness. The best results are obtained when there is good contact between the soil and the seeds.

Sowing Times

Sowing can best be achieved by mixing the seed with dry sand, dry sifted topsoil or sawdust and evenly broadcast. It is important that the seed is in contact with moisture in the soil so the seedbed should be lightly raked and then rolled.
