Ref: mixgameorg

This is our best-selling game crop which is a traditional spring sown mixture containing species selected to provide feed and cover. It is of particular interest to pheasants and partridges, but is also attractive to other wild farm birds. It is best sown during April and May into a well-worked seedbed. It is worth creating a stale seedbed before sowing in order to reduce the weed population. The mixture should be sown at 20mm.
