Gainsborough mixture

The Gainsborough wild flower mix has been formed to include less species than the Constable Mix, however there are far more seeds of each wild flower specie included. This improves the chance of establishment especially in areas where the soil is quite fertile and the grasses are allowed to grow quickly and dominate. This is a beautiful mixture which is completed by the attractive non-aggressive meadow grasses.
