The City of Onkaparinga first purchased some of our wildflower seed mixes in April 2021 to create their 'Wildflower Wonder' at Woodcroft’s Robert Wright Park. Their goal was to create a more feasible (cost-effective) and beautiful option in contrast to a lawn in metropolitan conditions and to add a touch of wildness to local reserves and parks. They then expanded their meadow to Thalassa Park, Aberfoyle.
While most wildflower meadows are hand-seeded, the City of Onkaparinga established their meadow by using 'hydroseeding' which involves spraying liquid mulch mixed with wildflower seeds.
Widlfower seed mix used: Marvellous Meadows.
