Cornwall Meadow Seed Mix

This lovely mix is from mildly acidic grassland at St Golitha falls, in the Fowey valley. It has plenty of the beautiful Sweet vernal grass (28%), which I'm told is a good indicator of these conditions, but should also do well on neutral soil. The harvester characterises it as MG4, which seems right to us (?). It's an unusual and attractive mix.

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.
