Somerset (South) Meadow Mix

Somerset (South) Meadow Mix Wildflower Seeds

Regular price £8.50 £0.00
Tax included.

There's nothing quite like a traditional wildflower meadow in bloom. Not only breathtakingly beautiful, they are a biodiverse habitat for thousands of species from bees, butterflies and moths to beetles, crickets and skylarks.

Sadly nearly all the wildflower meadows have been destroyed over the last 70 years.

These British wildflower seeds give us the chance to do our bit and create an area of wildflowers to help our beleaguered insects.

How to create your patch of meadow

When to sow your wildflower seeds? Sow March to late April or the end of August to mid October.

There are instructions on the back of the packet but here's a video with guidance on preparation, sowing and maintenance from the experts at Habitat Aid.
