Weald Meadow Mix
Weald Native Origin Seed is a diverse meadow seed mix, sustainably harvested from ancient meadows throughout the Weald (in Kent, Sussex and Surrey). Many donor fields are designated sites (SSSI or SNCI) and two are Sussex Coronation Meadows. The donor sites are lowland neutral /acidic meadows, characterized as MG5, and are relatively wet and naturally species rich with large populations of Weald specialties such as Common Spotted Orchids, Dyers Greenweed, Pignut, Meadow Vetchling and Yellow Rattle.
