Blaencleddau Farm

Blaencleddau

Val and Eddie Kirby look after these hay meadows in the shadow of Foel Drygarn. Seed from here would be suitable for neutral to acid soils in west Wales, and it’ll be composed of some or all of the  species listed below. Those marked in bold are likely to form the bulk of the mix. The abundance of yellow rattle and eyebright makes it particularly suitable for meadow creation projects in the early stages, as both these plants steal nutrients from the roots of grasses, allowing the wildflowers in the meadow to flourish.
