    Try www.pictorialmeadows.co.uk

    They supplied a lot of the seed for the olympic stadium last year.

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.
  • Will try pctorialmeadows next year as I didn't have any success with most of

    the seeds I bought online or from garden centres this year. I plan to

    harvest lots of the seeds from the plug plants I resorted to buying and I don't think

    there is any harm in taking a few seed heads from those wildflowers

    you want to grow if you see them in the countryside but, as you probably know,

    you should never dig up wildflowers in the countryside.

    I took the dogs for a walk down by the river in late summer/autumn. I carry a paper bag and seeds of suitable species just fell into it.image

    No uprooting of plants though!!!!
