Description

Creates a habitat consisting of species that thrive in free draining sandy soils which gives subtle floral interest from late April - September. Sand based soils often create unsuitable or dry site conditions. For this reason grasses contained in this mixture are both drought resistant and provide stabilising ground cover. Suitable for use in road construction and on free draining sites. 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.
