Meadow Mixture
for Sandy Soils

This seed mixture consists of perennial wild flower seeds (20% by weight) and wild grass species (80% by weight).  It contains a mixture of grasses and wild flowers that are adapted to growing on sandy soils.  Sandy soils are usually infertile, well-drained and easy to work, but are prone to drought and so best seeded in autumn or winter to give the plants a chance to establish before the dry summer months.  The plants tend to be deep rooting and tolerant of drought.  All of the wild flower seeds are of British native 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:
