Design By Nature seed mixture
sold, ex works, by post or direct to customer is guaranteed.
Provided the 'cert' and the order number are provided and they match our
records. see below
Early spring photos sent to us also help us
identify problems before they arise
The world's only wildflower seed mixture guarantee.
40% of seed germinates from 4 days to 8 weeks.
40% will germinate in 12 months.
Balance over 36 months.
This is why we guarantee your seed for the
full 3 years, as wildflowers are wild, and as ours always grow, we can
offer replacement seeds.
We do not have to guarantee the seeds:
- Where weeds have smothered our
wildflowers. (so start with clean weed free sites)
- Where the wrong site details are
provided and wrong mixture is used, but something will grow just not
- Or where our site specific recommendations were not adhered
Every year we replace about 10 customers
seeds, not so bad when you think of the thousands who grow our seeds
In the case of live seeds and plants, failure to grow does not imply the
product was faulty.
However DBN will replace seed to customers who operate and use or products
in good faith, and who have also followed our advice and have contacted us as soon
as a problem arises.
Guarantee depends if the terms of sale and sowing
were adhered and photos
are taken before and after
seedlings and plants in the meadow and photos of the site in general must
be taken of the site before and after sowing and when the meadow or weeds
germinate and grow. this includes photos for every year to the third year,
how else can we tell what you are doing?
Wildflower seed can fail, especially if sown in winter outside DBN's
recommended sowing periods, or where the soil is not clean of unwanted
plants or weeds which will effect the growth of the products we
Wildflowers can also fail due to management
or biological reasons beyond our control.

seed mixture sold by DBN has an auto-generated seed certificate,
a combined guarantee and specification.
Germination tests are carried out on every
single species and when blended on every
mixture, so we know those that are fast or slow to germinate
