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.
