My native seed mixtures are unique, so please browse through their contents by scrolling further down this page and you will see many species, such as wild Orchid and Helleborine, which are not usually available within a commercially available mix. All seed is of native British origin.

Woodlands tend to be a less floristically diverse and colourful habitat when compared to meadows; to compensate for this I have created a unique woodland mix containing an exceptionally diverse range of native woodland wild flowers, 40 in total, at a higher than normal ratio of 30% wild flowers to grasses.

Due to the rarity of some of the species in this luxury mix i can only provide up to a 666sqm pack for each customer, for larger areas i suggest you make up the rest of the seed mix using my equally special ‘Economy mix for woodland and shade’, which you can view by clicking here.

If you have a shaded area of your garden or a hedge bank that you wish to seed with wild flowers of a woodland nature, then this mix would be the one to choose. It is ideal for use along woodland rides and open glades which do not get heavy seasonal leaf fall upon it (as this would prevent the seeds from germinating and in such situations you should use my wild flower bulbs).

Please note: dark areas directly under trees, particularly Sycamore, Holly or Beech trees etc. can be too shaded to allow for the germination of seeds, if the area is largely bare ground beneath you must question why and assume it too dark and consider either letting more light in or using my wild flower bulbs or you can use my mature wild flower plant collections for woodland if there is enough light evidenced by other plants surviving at ground level (excluding the presence of ivy or plants from bulbs).

If you fancy sowing an individual woodland wild flower consider the beautiful native white Wood Anemone (view my blog on this flower by clicking here) or the yellow Lesser Celandine (view my blog on this flower by clicking here), both are good for shaded areas where little else grows, both of these species can form a wonderful carpet of colour. You can find these species within my ‘Individual Bulb species’ page which you can view by clicking here.

Also great for using in shaded areas is my winter and spring flowering bulb collection which you can view by clicking here.
