Wet Meadow Seed Mix
This wet meadow seed mix contains a relatively wide range of native British wildflowers and grasses for wet and damp situations in full sun. It's a cost effective way of establishing a meadow area, and the species here will tolerate flooding.
These wildflowers all have British provenance and origin - i.e. the seed is harvested in the UK from plants growing in the UK
Although we test our seed and it has high germination rates, you need to be careful about initial care and establishing an annual regime.
