Sandy Soil Meadow Mix
This seed mix is ideal for starting a meadow area on sandy soils. There are a further 11 wildflower species included in it in addition to those listed below, which will create a diverse and colourful sward. This is a generic mix, so the wildflower element is guaranteed UK provenance and origin and the grasses are certified - i.e. not harvested from wild populations.
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.
Species making up over 4% of the mix are shown in bold.

British Wildflowers were very helpful when I enquired about the best way forward for an area of land I hope will become a wildflower meadow. The website was easy to use and and the offer of small amounts of seed was a blessing. It is great to think that the seeds are British and not imported and the service of delivery was amazingly fast.
