Northern Hay Meadow Seed Mix

This lovely mix has been put together by one of the UK's leading wildflower seed experts.   It's based on the kind of traditionally managed upland pastures that used to be common in northern England and Scotland, and is classified as MG3. Now - alas - there are only remnants of these ancient meadows left. The wildflowers have been harvested from some of them.

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.
