Our wildflower seed contains true UK native wildflower seeds and grasses, many from high quality nature conservation sites growing on Nature Reserves or SSSI's. We harvest our native seed from a wide range of sites across North England and Scotland. Since we harvest wild seed we can guarantee our seed are true native species from wild and hardy stock. Our native grasses are essential to use with other wildflowers to ensure they balance with the other plants. Please note on the internet/online some wildflower mixes use non-native/agricultural grass varieties with the same Latin Name. These grasses are usually bigger and can out-compete the other plants. Please check this and as a guide the price will give a clue, usually the cheaper wildflower mixes contain non-native grasses.
Since we harvest wild seed we are also able to offer local providence options. We also work with many landowners and this provides them a small income to support the great work they do. Buying our native seeds you are supporting local landowners who are managing habitats for wildlife. We collect seed by hand, using hand held vacs, brush harvesting and plot combines. We offer a range of options to supply the seed, this includes, straight from the field mix, partially separated seed and cleaned seed. We are also able to offer bespoke wildflower seed mixes and individual seed mixes.
