Butterfly and Moth Seed Mix
This butterfly and moth seed mix is made up of specially selected native grasses and a high proportion of UK wildflowers, some of which are food plants for butterfly and moth larvae. The flowers have a variety of flower shapes and sizes to provide nectar feeding stations for butterflies, bees, hoverflies and other pollinating insects. This is a colourful seed mix of native wildflowers and grasses which will do well in all other than very acidic or water-logged soils. The grasses selected here are particularly important food plants for a variety of butterflies and moths. We also offer similar collections of wildflower plug plants and wildflower seeds for butterflies and moths, but without the grasses. Like all our native wildflower and grass seed, this wildflower seed has guaranteed UK provenance.
35% British native wildflowers, 65% 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. We also run courses on meadow creation and management


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.
