Meadowmat have introduced a range of wildflower seed mixes to the shop at www.meadowmat.com
“There is something truly satisfying about growing your own wildflowers from seed” says Sales Manager Chris Carr “Its relatively inexpensive to do and that makes the experiment all the more fun”.
All Seed Has Been Sourced In The UK
Gardeners often ask us “does Meadowmat have native provenance?” and the answer is “yes”. All of the seeds in all of our products comes from the UK
Meadowmat Seed Mixes Match The Wildflower Turf
There are four seed mixes to choose from – each one corresponds to one of the Meadowmat wild flower turf varieties. That makes the little 20g packets of seed ideal for patching or repairs.
One 20g packet covers approximately 4 square metres of soil. (much more than that if you’re overseeding or repairing an area of meadow)

70% flowering plants and 30% grass by weight makes this one of the most floral wildflower meadow seed mixes on the market today.
