Woodland and Hedgerow Wild Flower Mix
Woodlands are being planted apace, so to go with the new woodlands we have created this mix. We hope to help you recreate the understory, which is many cases is the last part of a woodland to come back and the most difficult to regenerate naturally. Many of the species prefer woodland edge with a bit more light.
Please note, the picture here is just one we had because we wanted to show you a woodland edge, it’s not a demonstration of this mix. There aren’t bluebells in our mixes because we couldn’t find a reliable source of pure Irish bluebells (as in not hybridised with the Spanish bluebell) from the wild. Bluebells are a protected species.
Primroses are in our mix and we operate their trade with permission from DAERA. This is because they are a ‘Schedule 8 List 2, Wildlife Act NI, protected’ species.
