Wild flower seed mix for woodland and shade containing wild orchids and helleborines

I have just added 4 new uncommon and special wild flower species to my woodland and shade seed mix. I collected a good quantity of orchid seed last summer and I have enough to add to my main woodland and shade seed mixture, which will be available while stocks last! Early Purple Orchid is a new addition to add to the Common Spotted Orchid I already put in my mix.

Broad-leaved Helleborine is another exciting new addition along with Cowslip and Bugle. These additions should give you even more to look forward to as your woodland or shaded area develops. Orchids and Helleborines are always exciting to find in the wild and I love the idea of being able to give them to you to sow in your gardens, hedgebanks and woodlands.

My seed mixes will store well, the packs come in heavy duty zip sealed plastic bags and you can purchase now and keep them till the autumn or winter or beyond, just keep them dry and in a cool place out of direct sunlight (a drawer or container is best). My seed mixtures can change during the year as I run out of certain species and bring in new ones so keep an eye on the website.
