How much seed will I need?

Sowing rate for Annuals

Annuals are usually sown at 5g per m2.

Area in m2 Seed Required

1 m2 = 5g

5 m2 = 25g

10 m2 = 50g

50 m2 = 250g

100 m2 = 500g

200 m2 = 1kg

500 m2 = 2.5kg

1000 m2 = 5kg

10000 m2 = 50kg

Please note: 1 Acre is approx 4,000 m2; 10,000 m2 = 1 Hectare; 1 Hectare = 2.3 Acres

Sowing rate for Biennials and pure Perennials

Usually sown at 1g per m2

Area in m2 Seed Required

1 m2 = 1g

5 m2 = 5g

10 m2 = 10g

50 m2 = 50g

100 m2 = 100g

500 m2 = 500g

1000 m2 = 1kg

Please note: 1 Acre is approx 4,000 m2; 10,000 m2 = 1 Hectare; 1 Hectare = 2.3 Acres

For large-scale meadow creation projects using seed drilling techniques you can sow at rates as low as 0.5g/ m2 or less.
