Somerset (South) Meadow Seed Mix
This lovely mix is harvested from a natural burial ground in a beautiful and peaceful sloping site outside Crewkerne. It features over 50% 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.
