Wiltshire Meadow Seed Mix

*Shipping 2020 harvest from mid September*

This is a stunning meadow mix, typical of neutral to calcareous grassland. It's harvested from a beautiful meadow west of Salisbury Plain, and features a very high and diverse floral content - up to 80% of the mix! This included a large element of both Yellow Rattle and Eyebright, both of which are helpful in reducing the vigour of grasses.  We have used it on a number of local projects and it has been a great success. We'd describe it as MG5b, I think.

You can expect to receive your seed within five working days of placing an order, although this might vary according to demand.

Species making up over 4% of the seed mix are shown in bold.
