Description

The mixture is a blend of grass species that suit heathland soils and can be used to get coverage on these areas so that other species in surrounding heathland areas can colonise within the sward over time. Suits low fertility soils and creates a habitat for inverterbrates and ground nesting birds.

Where to use this mixture:

  • Poor fertility soils
  • For a natural grassland look
  • Reclamation sites
  • As a combination mixture with other wild flora
