They are designed to be sown in small areas in a garden.

Clear the area first of existing grass and weeds. Sow the seed mix at 2.0 grams per square metre. You will need to bulk the seed up with something like sand so that you can spread it thinly enough.

After sowing the seed roll the ground or walk all over it. The aim is that the seed should be pushed into the ground rather than buried too deep.

Sow March/April or August/September.
