RE1 is a grassland and wildflower mix which reflects an old hay meadow before the advent of modern agricultural practises. Suitable for management by grazing in the long term, for the first few seasons managing by cutting might be required in order to develop the depth of sward to avoid excessive poaching. If possible when cutting in late summer an area of up to one third should be left uncut until the following spring for overwintering inverterbrates. This area should be alternated each year.

RE1 can be used for

  • Heavy clay soils
  • Road verges
  • Embankments
  • Quarry areas
  • Lowland areas
  • To encourage insects and birds
  • A great habitat for inverterbrates and mammals.
