A large hessian sack of wildflower and grass seeds that are ideal for you to grow a generous wildflower meadow in your garden, similar to the wildflower meadow at Highgrove.
The Wildflower Meadow at Highgrove was introduced by His Majesty The King and Dame Miriam Rothschild over 35 years ago. Together they devised a seed mix of over 120 different species that were typical of the natural flora of Gloucestershire. The Meadow is now thriving and attracts a diverse spectrum of wildlife.
The meadow species are perennials and will take a few years to establish.
- Exclusive to Highgrove
- This is a perennial seed mix and will take a couple of years to establish
- The pack contains enough mix to cover an area of approximately 20 square metres (i.e. a rectangle 4m x 5m)
- The seeds have been harvested in the UK

When to sow
The Highgrove Wildflower Seed Mix is best sown from late August to late October or again form early March to mid April. Good ground preparation and a weed free surface is key. If the site can be kept watered, seeding can take place any time from the beginning of March to the end of October. Sowing in autumn is recommended as sowing in early spring may result in the yellow rattle in the mix to fail and will need to be resown in the autumn.
More information on sowing, growing and management can be found on the Highgrove page of the Wildseed website: wildseed.co.uk.
