Comprising: The Carmenta mixture is a real eye-catcher, consisting entirely of the seeds of tall flowering annuals. These flowers are ideal for larger areas, such as parks or golf courses. They also benefit birds, since the plants provide cover and a source of food. Carmenta consists of 40 different types of flowers, including Eschscholzia californica, Linum grandiflorum, Gypsophila paniculata, Papaver rhoeas, a large variety of Centaurea cyanus, Calendula officinalis, Cosmos bipinnatus, Leucanthemum, Helianthus annuus and Lavatera trimestris.
On average fertile soil no fertilization is required. The area for sowing should be loosely about 5cm deep. This can best be prepared in the fall of the previous year. Before sowing, finely level the soil with the rake or spade. Rough stones and root weeds should be eliminated. Then the sowing can be done. The amount of seed can be stretched by adding sawdust or quartz sand to 3-5 times the volume. This ensures a better distribution of the seeds on the surface. The optimal sowing depth is between 0.5 and 1.5 cm. For the germination sufficient moisture should be provided, especially at the beginning. Under good conditions, most seeds germinate in one to three weeks.
