Exmoor Meadow Seed Mix

This lovely meadow mix from east Devon is unusual as it's categorised as MG4 - i.e. there's no knapweed in it. It comes from a slightly acidic donor site, but will also work on neutral soils. It's a good starter mix with a nice selection of grasses.

The donor site is on the eastern edge of Exmoor, west of Monksilver.

There are full instructions on the back of the packet. You can expect to receive your seed within five working days of placing an order.

Speedy seedy

I needed the seeds in a hurry and they arrived in good time. Can’t yet say how well they grow yet as it’s only been a few days but I have ordered from BWS before and I have always been pleased.

Exmoor Meadow Seed Mix

I chose this mix because of the range of grasses and flowers available, to try out in our Devon garden/ field. Delivery was prompt and in good packaging i.e. paper and not excessive. I have yet to see how germination progresses.
