Woodland Edge Seed Mix
This seed mix is a specially selected mixture of grasses and wild native woodland flowers that will bloom in spring and early summer. It needs some shade. Woodland edge is a particularly important habitat for a number of invertebrates, including some bumblebees. We have increased the wildflower element of this mix to 30% as some of the species here can be rather shy! We also sell the wildflower element of this mix on its own, which might be helpful.
Please note that this seed mix includes Digitalis; the seeds and all parts of the Foxglove are extremely poisonous.
The bluebells in the mix are native, not Spanish, and harvested under DEFRA licence. We also sell Bluebell bulbs on their own. This wildflower seed has guaranteed UK origin and provenance and the grasses are certified.
30% native wildflower seed and 70% certified grasses.

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.
