Species Rich Parkland Grass Low Maintenance 20% ORGANIC

Ref: mixpglmorg

OELS/HLS Codes: HK7

A slow growing and more manageable seed mixture for those with low requirements from permanent grassland. This mixture can be grazed periodically or topped to keep a tidy appearance. Sow between March and early May or August and late September.

Due to availability of organic seed this mix comes at 20% organic, meaning our organic farmers will require a derogation from their certifying body to sow it. Derogation should be straightforward since only the creeping red fescue is available organically.
