    Formulated to be our best performing mixture when sowing seed on steep banks or areas of loose and unstable soils. The mixture will give rapid germination due to the inclusion of annual ryegrass which will act as a ‘nurse crop’, giving protection to the other species whilst they establish. The mixture includes a combination of deep-rooted, creeping, drought tolerant and hardwearing species to create an incredibly hardy mixture.
