Sainfoin is a natural wormer and a good source of condensed tannins which aid the digestion of protein. It is high in Omega-3 fatty acids which improve the resilience of the immune system. Sainfoin hay, also known as ‘holy hay’ or ‘healthy hay’, is low in sugar and starch and is particularly suitable for horses on a strict diet.
Sheeps parsley is high in iron and vitamins A and C. It is useful to alleviate the symptoms of kidney and bladder complaints.
Sheeps burnet, or salad burnet, is drought tolerant with a long growing season. It is highly nutritious and an excellent source of trace elements.
Ribgrass is a fast-growing, long-lasting herb, and a rich source of calcium and selenium. It helps maintain a healthy digestive system and its leaves are high in anti-inflammatory compounds making the herb effective for all types of inflammation.
Fenugreek is a valuable digestive tonic aiding the digestive system in making better use of available food. It is highly nutritious and a good source of protein and fat.
All the native wildflower seed in our mixtures is sourced from stock grown in the wild in Britain. It is then multiplied up commercially and mixed and packed in the UK so you can be confident you are buying native British wildflower seed.
