I don't know if anyone can offer any advice on this please. I have recently planted various packets of wild flower/meadow mix seeds in my garden, trying to do my bit for nature, and all. I made a list of all seeds which may be included, from the packets and have been checking on the internet to find information about those I don't know, ie annual or perennial, colour, height etc.
I was perturbed to find that one listed is corn cockle and some information I saw on the internet is that it is supposedly very rare and very poisonous. Is anyone able to confirm if this is the case or if there are varieties which are in fact harmless. I find it hard to believe that reputable seed companies would include something in wildlife/wild meadow mixes that was potentially harmful, not to mention rare. Details on the pack do say "any of the following may be included, depending on availability", or words to that effect. There may be quite a few listed that I am searching for that won't even be in the pack but to see the above was a bit disconcerting. Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks.
