Hedgerow and Light Shade Seed Mix
British native wildflowers and meadow grasses for lightly shaded situations.This mix will produce a long-season display of wildflowers in hedgerows, boundary fences and lightly shaded situations, on a wide range of soils. The species are widespread throughout Britain and the mix includes a high proportion of wildflowers to grasses - 30:70. We also sell Viper's Bugloss seeds separately. For deeper shade have a look at our Woodland edge mix. The wildflower seed has guaranteed UK origin and provenance. We have bumped up the wildflower element as we've found some of these species are slow to establish!
30% British native wildflower seed, 70% certified grasses.

Your purchase helps us support a range of charities which are related to the products we sell.
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.
