Welsh Meadow Seed Mix
This meadow seed mix is harvested by two ecologists from two hay meadows in West Pembrokeshire and North Camarthenshire: Blaencleddau Farm and Caeau Rhyd-y-Mwyn. We're delighted to have secured a limited supply of the 2021 harvest.
It's appropriate for neutral to acid soils. The mix has lots of Eyebright and Yellow Rattle to help regulate the grasses, which makes it particularly appropriate for new meadow projects. It's tremendously diverse and typically has very high floristic content. Carefully harvested by two local ecologists, who reckon the wildflower content is around 60% - we haven't had a chance to analyse the 2021 mix properly yet.
Oh - we know there are orchids in the photo and there may be orchid seeds in your packet, but please don't expect to see any. They're pretty demanding and unlikely to establish. If they do, please send us a photo!
There are full instructions on the back of the packet. Now the new harvest is in you can expect your seed to be delivered within 5 workings days of placing your order.
