General purpose wild flower seed mixture
This is my mix for all soils types and I reckon it is better than any other ‘standard mix’ you will find, due to its long season of flowering, extra large range of species, beauty and wildlife value.
My native seed mixtures are unique, so please browse through their contents by scrolling further down this page and you will see a much greater variety of species than is usually obtainable within a commercially available mix. Many of the species present, such as Orchid are unique and not found in other seed mixtures.
This mix produces some beautiful wild flower landscapes, small and large. I specialise in creating these habitats and this is my unique seed combination to cover all soil types. It contains 35 different native wildflower species at a higher than normal ratio of 30% wild flowers to grasses.
Once established this species rich mix will display a wide range of some of our most beautiful native wild flowers with different flowers coming into bloom from spring, through summer and well into the autumn to produce a continuous cascade of changing colour. It is suitable for any soil but for woodland or shaded areas I suggest you use my ‘woodland and shade mix’.
