Severn Valley Seed Mixes
These wildflower and grass seed mixes from the Severn Valley are for damp sites. They have been direct harvested from natural donor sites in Gloucestershire and Worcestershire. The supplier will match the mix from the most local site to you. Because the mix is direct harvested we are unable to give %s of the constituents, which will vary from year to year and depend on the specific site harvested. It does include some of our most beautiful and delicate native grasses, including Sweet vernal grass and Crested dog's-tail. This seed mix has a high 30:70 proportion of wildflowers to grasses.

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.
