Brownfield Site Seed Mix

UK STOCK – Fast and Free Delivery. Dispatched with Royal Mail 2nd Class.

This mix provides a flower-rich habitat, with 80% flora compared to a usual 20% in a meadow mix, for brownfield sites. These sites are under increasing pressure from development. Brownfield sites are a habitat of principle importance known as ‘Open Mosaic Habitat on Previously Developed Land’ or OMHPDL.

The seed mix is suitable for a wide range of free-draining substrates often of post-industrial origin. This diverse assemblage of wildflowers was developed to provide both ephemeral species to colonise bare ground and tall biennial species for sward structural diversity with perennial species and two types of grass to establish permanent meadow habitat. Brownfield sites provide important habitats for priority invertebrates and reptiles
