Chalk and Limestone Soils Wildflower Seeds LW2M

This mixture of UK-native wildflower and grass seeds has been selected as the most ideal for chalk and limestone soil. Dry soils such as these aren’t known for being as fertile, make up for that by bearing some especially striking species such as the soft-looking Scabious and the striking spikes of Sainfoin.

Many of these are boisterous blooms and grasses that grow year after year, but their habitat means that they’re easier to control if needed, making them perfect for those who want to mix and match their meadows for the perfect arrangement!
 

This mix contains 23 different flower species and 8 meadow grasses.

Sowing Rate: 5 grams per sq/m - 1kg covers 200sq/m
