British Wildflower Seeds sources and supplies the seed mixes here from small scale harvesters and producers around the country. Most of them are members of Flora Locale. Most of the seeds are harvested directly from wildflower meadows, many of them ancient. Our seed packets are packaged and despatched by All Things Rural.
British Wildflower Seeds is part of Habitat Aid Ltd.
Habitat Aid is based in Somerset, where it was founded by Nick Mann in 2008. It promotes and sells British native trees, hedging, aquatic plants, wildflower seed and heritage fruit trees, sourced from a community of small specialist UK nurseries and growers. Habitat Aid also offers groundwork, planting and seeding and a range of ecological services through a network of specialist partners.
In addition to supporting and promoting our suppliers we have close links to a number of UK conservation charities, to whom we donated money and services amounting to £40,000 over 2015 and 2016.
We think local origin and distinctiveness isn’t just important for biodiversity, but also socially and culturally.
