Made up of species that grow well in difficult soils and areas of dappled shade - this mixture gives excellent ground cover providing an alternative to weeding around the base of trees, and eliminating damage to bark and roots caused by mowing or strimming.
A colourful collection of 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.
