Weald Meadow Mix

Weald Native Origin Seed (WNOS) is a diverse meadow seed mix, sustainably wild harvested from ancient meadows throughout the Weald (in Kent, Sussex and Surrey). Many donor fields are designated sites (SSSI or LWS) and two are Sussex Coronation Meadows. The donor sites are lowland neutral /acidic meadows, characterized as MG5, and are relatively wet and naturally species rich with large populations of Weald specialties such as Green-winged Orchids, Dyers Greenweed, Pepper Saxifrage, Pignut, Meadow Vetchling and Yellow Rattle.

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.

As always, great seeds and delivery was very quick.

We have ordered from BWS many times and I would not go anywhere else.

Havnt received them yet.

Hi Maggie

We were upset to hear this - how disappointing for you. We sent the seeds out the day after you placed your order as usual, and the Royal Mail tracker claims the parcel was delivered some time ago - we sent the details through this morning. If you can't find the delivery lurking somewhere do please check the address, let us know, and we'll resend it ASAP.

can't give feedback as hasn't turned up yet

Hi Amanda - thank you for taking the time to get in touch. I'm sorry your seed hasn't arrived yet; we have been waiting for the new harvest to come in, which was delayed by the weather. The harvesters have now finished cleaning it and we should be receiving it later this week, when we'll send it out ASAP. We should have communicated this to you, for which I can only apologise, but you have plenty of time to sow the seed.
