A collection of seven predominantly blue and mauve summer-flowering wildflowers designed to provide a haven for native butterflies. Perfect for a sunny site with poor, well-drained soil, to encourage visiting butterflies to breed it's important to retain a small patch of stinging nettles close by in full sun to provide food for the young caterpillars.Garden care: When sowing seeds do not use a fertiliser since wildflowers prefer poor soils. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. In autumn cut the faded flowerheads down to the ground and compost the dead stems.
