Cotswolds Meadow Seed Mix
This attractive meadow mix is harvested from Farm Park, Adam Henson's farm outside Cheltenham in the Cotswolds. Like everything else on the farm, as you can imagine, the meadows are immaculate.
We would categorise this mix as MG5a - a typical mix for a range of well drained neutral soils in lowland Britain. It's a strong and resilient starter mix for a new meadow and has a strong element of plants from the clover family - great for bees. The photo shows the meadow just before harvesting.
There are full instructions on the back of the packet. You can expect to receive your seed within five working days.

We're doing our best to make the garden in our new build house wildlife friendly. Did a lot of research on best types of mix. Wanted one with yellow rattle to help keep the grass under control but with fairly local mix of other plants. This looks like it fits the bill perfectly, will be sewing it in autumn and looking forward to seeing the results next year.
Very pleased with our purchase -thank you
