This mix is composed of those wildflowers tolerant of higher nutrient environments and grass competition as they can grow tall in the sward or scramble up grass stems e.g meadow vetchling.
It is a colourful mix with a long flowering period that will provide a meadow wildlife habitat. Regular low intensity grazing or mowing in initial establishment period (4-6 years) and removing the cut material will help to reduce fertility. Higher diversity mixes could be established such as BFS 1 Traditional Hay Meadow Mix once the fertility is lowered through appropriate management.
