Description

Suitable for sowing within hedgerows and semi–shaded woodland and providing floral interest from  April - September. Due to light levels being lower than in the open field sites growth of companion grasses will be slow in turn making this mixture low in maintenance. Brambles may require control from time to time. 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.
