Grass Accompaniment

When choosing 80:20 Grass:Wildflowers, the mixture contains a rich blend of grasses, formulated to compliment the wildflower species. The grass blend contains slow growing species which will not compete against the slower growing wildflowers. Some of the grasses included in the mixtures are quite rare, such as Meadow Foxtail and Sweet Vernal. Soil type specific mixtures also contain grass species that are indicative of that particular habitat, such Wavy Hairgrass in the acid soils mixture and Wood Meadow Grass in the woodland edge mixture.
