Sandy Soil Wildflower Meadow Seed Mix
A meadow seed mix of British grasses and wildflowers which are deep rooted and drought tolerant and will do well on well drained sandy soils. We also sell a less diverse mix of plug plants for light soils without the grasses. This wildflower seed has guaranteed UK provenance and the meadow grasses are certified.
30% native wildflower seed and 70% 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.
