Berkshire Meadow Seed Mix (Organic)

This seed mix we would categorise as CG2b - a beautiful highly floral meadow mix, harvested from a well known organic farm outside Lambourn. It features lots of the gorgeous Quaking-grass, Briza media, now often grown in onramental borders. You'll find other species very typical of chalk downlands too, including another lovely grass, Koeleria macrantha. Please note, although there may be some orchid seed in this mix regard it as an unexpected bonus if any appear!
