Northumberland Meadow Seed Mix

This diverse and colourful mix is harvested by Kevin Wharf, a working farmer outside Thropton in the Coquet valley. Kevin is passionate about wildlife and has some lovely land, which he has harvested for seed over the last 20 years. We're thrilled to be selling it for him. It's a great robust mix for exposed sites with neutral soils and has a large dollop of Yellow Rattle, Rhinanthus minor. Categorised as MG5a.

You can generally expect to receive your seed within five working days of placing an order.

This mix is available in smaller quantities through our British Wildflower Seeds website.
