Welsh Marches Meadow Seed Mix
These Welsh Marches seed mixes of grasses and wildflowers are rather special. They have been direct harvested from a number of natural donor sites around Hereford - in Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire, and Radnorshire. The supplier will match the mix from the most local site to you. This is an area which is home to some of the best remaining ancient meadows in the country, so these are particularly interesting mix, which have been harvested from wetter meadows. The meadows from which the seed is harvested include sites of special scientific interest, and because the mix is direct harvested we are unable to give precise %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. Among the wildflowers you will find Yellow Rattle.
Species present include: Yellow rattle, Ox-eye daisy, Common knapweed, Red clover, Meadow buttercup, Birdsfoot trefoil, Agrimony, Ribwort plantain, White clover, Common catsear, Selfheal, Eyebright, Common Spotted Orchid, Lesser stitchwort, Hop trefoil, Cowslip, Crow garlic, Sweet vernal grass, Crested dogstail , Yorkshire fog, Meadow foxtail, Common bent.

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.
