Meadow Mixture
for Pond Edges

This seed mixture consists of perennial (apart from Yellow Rattle which is an annual) wild flower seeds (20% by weight) and wild grass species (80% by weight).  It contains species  suitable for the marginal boggy zone found at the edges of ponds, ditches and streams.  Most plants need to be well established to withstand winter flooding, so seeding needs to take place very early in autumn or better still, in spring.  All of the wild flower seeds are of British native wild origin.  The grass seed is of British native wild origin where possible (marked with W).  The seeds should be sown at the rate of 4g per square metre.  The mix will consist of seeds from the following:
