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. Please note that this seed mix includes poisonous Digitalis. 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.
20% native wildflower seed and 80% certified 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.
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.
