Mid Sussex Meadow Mix

This is a robust mix for neutral well drained soils, harvested from a meadow site at the Free Chase Estate at Warninglid, half way between Haywards Heath and Horsham. It's MG5 (mesic grassland 5), so a type found throughout lowland Britain. Within that category we reckon it's probably MG5c, and features a particularly nice combination of grasses. 

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.
