Product Name: Biodiversity Wildflower Meadow Mixture  (Tolerates light-shade)

Description: 

WF02 is a medium to tall mixture for any normal dry to moist soil and some species will grow in semi-shaded places especially those enriched with humus or rotted leaves, hence the addition of bluebell and other wood species. As you all know, growing any wildflowers in the shade is difficult so results in those spots will be far slower.

This mixture contains a riot of all different kinds of wildflowers but its not suitable for small spaces.. 

 

A general mixture not intended to be sown on very wet acid or alkaline soils, as we have more suitable mixtures

 

WF02 is one of our best mixtures for encouraging Biodiversity
