Northumberland Meadow Seed Mix

We were thrilled to find this lovely meadow mix from the upper Coquet valley, one of the most stunning and remote parts of England. It's sourced from a working farm outside Thropton, where farmer Kevin Wharf has had over 20 years experience supplying wildflower seed. It is an invaluable mix for sites experiencing harsher conditions and has a large element of Yellow Rattle. Categorised as MG5a - good for neutral soils.

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.
