Water’s Edge Seed Mix – 80% Grasses / 20% Flowers

From £12.50

A mix of 24 native wildflower species and 9 species of grass. 3 of the grass species are produced in the UK (indicated by an N following the species name). The species in this mix will all tolerate flooding once established, and many would grow in the pond itself. Care must be taken to ensure sowings are given as much time as possible before flooding of the site occurs.

Mix is 80% Grasses to 20% Wildflowers by weight.

Sowing Rate: Joel recommends 4g per square metre.
