This is my unique seed mix to create a wonderful low flowering wild flower lawn, that you can mow to keep short and tidy.

Containing 26 beautiful wild flower species including wild orchid, wild thyme, lawn chamomile, wild marjoram and other gorgeous species to delight your senses. This mixture is fantastic for bees and butterflies as well as humans. The lawn will tolerate a cut height of about 2 inches. This mix contains a high ratio of 30% wild flowers to grasses. It will cope with some shade, so long as you see sky when you look up, then it’s fine seeding it in that location.

To receive good flowering maintain a mowing frequency of about one cut every 3 to 6 weeks for the majority of the summer but you can be flexible with this.

This wild flower lawn seed mix is suitable for any soil and will come up year after year without the need for reseeding.

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 even into the autumn to produce a continuous show of colour.

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 are not found in other seed mixtures. This mix is more expensive than my other mixes due to the scarcity of some of the species included.

What my customers say:
Dear Colin, Just writing to let you know that I’m absolutely delighted with the low flowering lawn mix of yours. This is its 2nd ‘summer’ and it’s exceeded all expectations. I’m up in Aberdeen’ where many folk told me I’d bought seed from too far south. My pride and joy just now is the common spotted orchid! The bees are loving the birds foot trefoil. Your sowing instructions were superb, logical and so easy to follow. Thanks again for a wonderful colourful bee-friendly patch of lawn. Regards, Pete Jeffels, Aberdeen.
