Wildflower seed suppliers?

Completely new to the gardening world, so when I want to find anything out, I'm asking on here...
After a question about a wildflower section in my (soon to be) new garden, I was advised to take a look at  this site...
https://wildseed.co.uk/mixtures

Now this is a very nice site, with some very nice mixes on it... BUT, I was wondering if these are about standard for prices of Wildflower mixes?
Also, is there a reason for (what appears to me to be) the high cost?

Lastly, other than this site, are there any other trusted suppliers that I should look at?

Thanks in advance, Martin

    I’ve been looking at wildflower seeds and plants too and have stumbled across these websites. I hope they are helpful.

    Have you seen the lovely photos on this forum  @Guernsey Donkey2  has posted on the thread "so pleased with my plug plant wild flower area?" It's simply beautiful, you might get some tips from that.

    pictorial meadows did the wild flower meadows for the olympics.(London 2012)


    Also Chiltern seeds if you only want a small amount.

    Thank you @bullfinch.  I grew foxgloves, knapweed, ox eye daisies, teasel, ragged robin and borage, campion all from seed into plug plants, I sprinkled poppy seed and a few other seeds in the gaps. I dug up some violets, clover and daisies from our lawn to add to the mix - it was fun to do, with a little effort and great reward.

    Not personally had seeds from this firm but have bought plug plants from them and been very pleased.

    I've been buying all sorts of seeds and materials from the Organic Gardening Catalogue for many years and always found them satisfactory.

    But before you go spending money, there are lots of lovelies to be had on this forum for the cost of the postage, look at the seed swap 2019 thread.

    I will have some wild flower seeds to swap in a week or two.  Ox eye daisies, poppies, foxglove and pink campion.  Only a limited amount so message me if you would like a mixture.

    Wow... Thanks for all the replies, gives us plenty to look into. <3
  • I have ordered plants from Rosybee, plants entirely for bees of all kinds.  They are excellent and although if you order any item they come in sixes not individuals.  I have been ordering for a while now and can absolutely reccomend them.  Hope this helps.

    I have used lots of wildflower seeds from https://www.wildflower.co.uk/wildflower-seed-species.html.  I find the quality to be really good and I think they are cheap.
