A mixture that would have been used over the centuries, from the times when water meadows were managed and controlled by flooding to protect the grasses from frost and freezing damage in winter and conserve the water meadows feed value. The regular silt coverings deposited valuable minerals around the roots allowing the meadow to flourish during the Spring; creating valuable grazing. Ideal for use in cottage gardens to give a more natural appeal. Creates the perfect habitat for a vast variety of insects. Ideal for wetter areas such as along river banks and surrounding ponds.
