Description

Creates a meadow for most situations, combining wild flora species found in WF1 with 80% grasses to produce a grassland meadow mixture, suitable for all soil types. All wildflower species are UK native. The mixture is balanced so that there is some floral interest from April through to September. The inclusion of a good percentage of annuals assists in giving a first season display when the mixture is sown in March or April. A great habitat for invertebrates which in turn provide food for birds and mammals. If possible when cutting in late summer an area of up to one third should be left uncut until the following Spring for overwintering invertebrates. This area should be alternated each year.

An 80:20 mix of grasses & native wildflowers including Foxglove, Cornflower and Selfheal.
