Somerset (South) Meadow Seed Mix
This lovely mix is harvested from a meadow on heavy wet ground outside Langport. It features 60% wildflowers to grasses, and looks to us like a typical MG5 mix, so very typical of many meadows across the UK. It's strong all rounder, which will work very nicely in medium fertility soils on the heavy side. It would go well here, where we have clay.
There are full instructions on the back of the packet. You can expect to receive your seed within five working days.
Species making up over 4% of the mix are shown in bold.

Very disappointed, of course this could be an issue with Royal Mail. So still waiting hopefully.
Species description was detailed and helped us to make our choice. Lots of variation in seeds so should give us a great wild flower meadow :)
I purchased the Wildflower seeds as a birthday gift for a wonderful friend who is planning a wildflower meadow in her large garden. She was delighted to receive the seeds. It will obviously be a while before we know how successful they are.
Fantastic all-around service from order to delivery.
Our Military children are hoping to create a wild flower meadow and allow Mother Nature to provide the learning outcomes. How exciting.
