Wiltshire Meadow Seed Mix
This is a stunning meadow mix, typical of neutral to calcareous grassland. It's harvested from a beautiful meadow west of Salisbury Plain, and features a very high and diverse floral content - up to 80% of the mix! This included a large element of both Yellow Rattle and Eyebright, both of which are helpful in reducing the vigour of grasses. We have used it on a number of local projects and it has been a great success. We'd describe it as MG5b, I think.
You can expect to receive your seed within five working days of placing an order, although this might vary according to demand. This mix is available in quantities of 1kg and upwards through our main website.
