Wet Wildflower Meadow Seed Mix
This seed mix of native British wildflowers and grasses will produce a diverse and long-season display on wet soils, pond surrounds and river banks. These are the kind of grasses and wildflowers you would find in traditional water meadows, now extremely rare in Britain. The mix has a generous 30% of wildflowers, which is why it's more expensive than some of our competitors.
Like all our native wildflower seed, guaranteed UK provenance. Certified grasses. We also offer a less diverse selection of plug plants for wet areas without the grasses. You can buy smaller packets of this seed mix here on our sister website.

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.
