South Coast Meadow Seed Mix

This mix was harvested at the National Trust estate at Spyway Farm, on the Dorset coast. The thin soils of Purbeck have produced fabulous grassland to produce this lovely mix, which is harvested by a local and only available in small quantities. It's an absolute beauty, with a very high % of wildflowers, and will thrive on a range of soils from slightly calcareous to neutral. Outstanding value, will thrive in coastal and inland locations.

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.

The illustration shows an orchid in the donor meadow; there may be orchid seed in your packet, but don't get your hopes up. You may be lucky but they're demanding plants and the chances are your conditions won't suit them. Sorry!

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

The seed has been sown but a bit early to assess the results. Loved the minimal and recyclable packaging and instructions.
