Clay Soil Wildflower Meadow Seed Mix
This mix of meadow grasses and wildflower seeds will provide a diverse and attractive habitat in heavy clay soils in full sun. Contrary to popular belief these can be good for wildflower meadows, so long as fertility levels aren't too high.
We also sell a less diverse but similar mix of plug plants for heavy soils without the grasses, or you can buy just the wildflower element as seed. Like all our native wildflower seed, guaranteed UK provenance. Certified grasses.
20% native wildflower seed and 80% 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.
