The species have been carefully chosen to provide a long flowering season from Spring to late Autumn, with a varied range of colour and habitat which is attractive to pollinators and in aesthetic appearance. Sky Garden’s Biodiverse Wildflower Seed Mix can be used to meet local and national Biodiversity Action Plans and BREEAM ecology credits.
