Wiltshire Meadow Seed Mix

This is a pretty and diverse meadow mix, typical of neutral to calcareous grassland. It's harvested by one of our best suppliers from a beautiful meadow close to the Wylie valley, to the west of Salisbury Plain. As you would expect from a mix from that part of the world, it has a very high and diverse floral content - typically nearly 70% wildflowers (including around a whopping 10% Yellow Rattle) to only 30% grasses. Spectacular. This makes it great value for money too, and perfect for neutral to calcareous soils. We'd describe it as MG5b, I think.

You can expect to receive your seed within five working days of placing an order, although this might vary according to demand.

Species making up over 4% of the seed 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.


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.
