Wales Wildflower Meadow Seed Mix

This seed mix is ideal for anyone creating a meadow on neutral soil, and includes a wide diversity of grasses and wildflowers including significant elements of Yellow Rattle and Eyebright. It also has a very high wildflower content - the harvesters estimate 50% to 60% this year (this is just an estimate!), which means it offers very good value for money. The seed is harvested by two ecologists from two sites in West Pembrokeshire and North Camarthenshire - Blaencleddau and Caeau Rhyd-y-Mwyn - which means it has more species than a single site would typically produce.

We're very excited to have secured enough seed from the 2021 harvest to sell here.

Oh, by the way - I know there are orchids in the photo and there may well be orchid seed in the seed you buy, but don't expect to see any! Several of our "direct harvest" seed mixes have orchids in but we don't usually mention them as they're unlikely to germinate.

Our Welsh meadow mix is also available here in smaller size packets through our sister website.
