Exmoor Meadow Seed Mix

This lovely meadow mix from east Devon is slightly unusual as it's categorised as MG4 - i.e. there's no knapweed in it. It comes from a slightly acidic donor site, but will also work on neutral soils. It's a good starter mix with a nice selection of grasses.

The donor site is on the eastern edge of Exmoor, west of Monksilver.

Species making up over 4% of the mix are shown in bold.

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.
