Wiltshire Meadow Seed Mix

This is a pretty and diverse meadow mix, typical of calcareous grassland. It's harvested by one of our best suppliers from a beautiful  old meadow close to Stonehenge. As you would expect from a mix from that part of the world, it has a very high and diverse floral content - 68% wildflowers to 32% grasses.  This make it great value for money too. If you have a limestone or chalky site, look no further.

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.
