From Agrimony right the way though to Yellow-rattle, there's a whole host of wildflower seeds you can choose from if a particular look is what you're going for. Each type of wildflower has it's own unique set of qualities, and whether you're keen to create a meadow full of sunkissed golden tones with healing properties like that of St John's-wort or you want a wildflower garden that looks pretty in pink when dressed in Greater Knapweed or Purple Loosestrife  - we've got you covered. 

 

Maybe you're looking for something a little more unusual that's a firm favourite with the bees, in which case an ocean blue garden of Borage is what you need. Or what about the Devil's-bit Scabious? A funky looking plant that isn't half as hellish as it sounds.

Though its pincushion-like, protruding anthers amidst indigo petals seem a little strange, we promise there’s nothing diabolical about the devil’s-bit scabious. In fact, its name comes from its shallow roots, which according to folklore were bitten short out of jealousy for the flower’s beauty… and, being pollen-rich and beloved by bees,  it’s safe to say this flower is actually a devilishly good addition to a garden!

Yellow Rattle (Rhinanthus minor) Seeds

*** Fresh Seed From Crop 2020 *** An important addition to a wild meadow, and a surprisingly musical twist to any garden! Its 2-lipped golden blooms look like bells or singing birds paired with its large calyx, which when ripe produces a rattling sound in the breeze as the seeds jangle around inside.
