UK Native Clay Soils Mixture


Composed of species that are adapted to growing on soils with a high clay content. Clay soils are generally mildly acid to neutral, prone to waterlogging, sticky and heavy when wet, and hard to crumble when dry.

A mix of 19 native wildflower species and 6 species of grass. The species in this mixture are found on clay soils, which may retain water occasionally, yet dry out and crack open in the summer.
