Wild Grasses

All the wild grass seed stocks we offer originate from wild plant populations in Britain. With a few exceptions the seed we offer has been crop grown from these stocks on our own farms near King's Lynn and Bath.

In our lists we have used the latin names given in Stace, (1997), ‘New Flora of the British Isles', CUP.

The identification of grasses is quite technical and beyond the scope of this web site so only a general description is given. Good reference books are the classic ‘Grasses' by C.E. Hubbard, published by Penguin and the new ‘Grasses of the British Isles' published by the Botanical Society of the British Isles.
