County Sourced Wildflower Seeds – 2023

Essex Wildflower Seeds

Essex has a highly diverse range of flora and fauna throughout its countryside, thanks to the range of beautiful rural locations within its borders with heavy clay soils typical of the county. With so much diverse geology, it’s not hard to choose Essex as the perfect site to source wildflower seeds for WildaHome seed mixes. Indeed, around 70% of Essex is deemed as rural, with rolling chalk hills and 87 nature reserves, so there are wildflowers to be seen everywhere. In addition, inhabitants and visitors will have plenty of options to see breathtaking landscapes and wildlife. For instance, Abberton Reservoir offers a wetland site of international importance for wildfowl, and the impressive expanse of saltmarsh at St Osyth is the spectacular Colne Point Nature Reserve.

Sussex Wildflower Seeds

Boasting the South Downs, the Weald, and Ashdown Forest, Sussex has some beautiful countryside in its pleasant landscape. Founded in 477 as the kingdom of Sussex when Saxon invaders gave it its name, the land of the South Saxons, it was purposely split into two counties back in the 12th century with the more familiar names of West and East Sussex. Sitting on the south coast of England, the two counties offer chalkland of the South Downs, heavy clay soils of the Weald, sandstone of Ashdown Forest and the low-lying reclaimed marshland of the Pevensey Levels. With such diverse geology on offer, the two counties of Sussex truly are perfect sites to harvest wildflower seeds for our WildaHome seed mixes.

Kent Wildflower Seeds

Kent can be located on the most southeasterly corner of Britain with just over 350 miles of coastline and sitting just 20 or so miles away from France at its narrowest. Awarded the name Garden of England for the abundance of orchards and hop gardens, the county of Kent is also home to the unique Romney Marsh, a low-lying wetland landscape perfect for bird watching as well as the High Weald. Situated to the west of Kent, the High Weald forms a medley of woodlands, rolling hills, and wildflower meadows covering 564 square miles.

With a third of the county deemed areas of outstanding natural beauty, there’s certainly plenty to see venturing out, including the Kent Downs that offers dramatic views and diverse wildlife and habitats that stretch from Dover’s famous White Cliffs up to the borders of Surrey and London. Finding beautiful landscapes won’t be a problem with riverbanks, grasslands, meadows, and ancient woods to explore. And with such a richness of habitats and loamy soils, it’s no wonder Kent makes the ideal county to harvest wildflower seeds for WildaHome’s seed mixes.

Seed Mulch Mats with County Sourced Wildflower Seeds

If you’re looking for a way to sow and protect wildflower seeds from birds and other wildlife, seed mulch mats maybe your answer. Seed mulch mats are biodegradable paper or cardboard-like sheets placed over newly sown wildflower seeds. The mats help regulate soil temperature and moisture levels while protecting from pests like birds, ants, and moles.
