Last year’s Meadow mix was stunning!
Useful website information, prompt delivery, nice to have a local (within county) seed mix to purchase. Looking forward to next summer!
Safe and prompt delivery. Love the packaging. Sown in a variety of ground from bare soil to existing meadow with not much grass variety. Live within 30 miles so good to get a local provenance. Looking forward to assessing the results next year.
The seeds arrived in a timely manner. Can’t wait to sow them & see the results
