Basic General Purpose Wildflower Meadow Seed 

This simple and cost effective general purpose meadow seed mix of grasses and wildflowers will produce low maintenance wildflower grassland where low costs of establishment and easy maintenance are a priority. It does what it says on the tin - it's a basic mix which provides a robust start. The seed mix is tolerant of most sites and soil conditions, but if you would like a more diverse collection of flowers and grasses please look at our Special General Purpose mix.  Both seed mixes are mixed with preset %s; to understand the difference between this and direct harvest mixes, please read our blog . This wildflower seed has guaranteed UK provenance. Certified grasses.

We strongly recommend reading up on wildflower meadows before buying seed - see our resources section and brief guide to preparation and aftercare, which includes links to our "how to" blogs and video.


Although we test our seed and it has high germination rates, you need to be careful about initial care and establishing an annual regime. Don't be put off though - once you get the hang of it it's pretty straightforward.
