AB8 flower rich seed.

We will be looking for a good AB8 seed when spring arrives. Can anyone point me in the direction of a reliable germinating seed that will see out the five year period. Price is important, but i would rather do it once. thanks for any advice.

It needs management to achieve the diverse sward you want. Top it regularly in the first year to allow the slower establishing species in the mix to get going. The bad plots I've seen are the ones sown and forgotten.

I'm not much of a flower gardener, do I put any fertiliser down in the seed bed ? If so what and how much and I was advised to not drill the seed in but to broadcast, but that could be wasteful on 6m strips.

Could I ask peoples advice on establishing AB8.
Have a fair amount to drill between now and September.
Some ground is worked down and ready to drill (the rest is in wheat at present).
With no rain in the forecast and the ground very dry would you wait ?
Also, do you find September drilled establishes better than May.
Thank you in advance.
