COTTON GRASS SEEDS
Taking them back to their Yorkshire roots, Mark and Keith have compiled this collection of seeds featuring their classic Moordale design. The selection of 10 varieties includes some of their favourite wild flowers, that can be found on the moors and dales.
COTTON GRASS (Eriophorum angustifolium) A member of the sedge family (so not technically a grass) thrives in the harshest of environments where it can take advantage of the lack of competition. After pollination in early summer, the small, unremarkable green and brown flowers develop distinctive white seed-heads that resemble tufts of cotton.
CULTIVATION: In spring, sow the seed in pots in a cold frame. Place the pots in a tray of water to keep the compost moist. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in the summer.Created in collaboration with Manchester Art Gallery, our range of seeds is inspired by the wild flowers of Dungeness, bringing its magical landscape to your own garden.
