Particularly useful in small gardens, rock gardens or areas around terraces, this versatile seed mix provides a profusion of soft whites, pinks and yellows, with purple accents. The extra-short characteristic of this mix provides an opportunity to grow bee-friendly blooms in every nook and cranny, and even in impoverished soils around the garden.
A colourful collection of dwarf cottage garden favourites, chosen for their value to wildlife and combined to create drifts of meadowy blooms. Successive flowering over several months will provide a continuous food source for pollinators. Sow directly onto prepared soil. Perfect for wildlife gardens, community spaces and urban ecology.
