Chalk & Limestone 80/20 Meadow Mix
£18.00 – £2,146.80 inc VAT
Our chalk and limestone mix can be used to create a wildflower and grass meadow on chalky and calcareous soils. Typically, chalk and limestone offer low fertility, so these soils can support many distinctive wildflowers. Our carefully selected mix comprises 28 British native wildflower species and 9 grass species to create a diverse and beautiful habitat for wildlife. Flowering from early spring to October, the mix contains mainly annuals but also the biennial Goat’s Beard and annual Black Medick.
Mix: 80% Grasses to 20% Wildflowers by weight
