Designed Edible Meadows
Beautiful and biodiverse wildflower meadows that include edible plants found in meadow habitats from around the world.
If you would like to experiment with an edible meadow I do offer the creation of these plantings.
I do not currently offer seed mixes for people to implement themselves. These are designed and specified for the land, growing conditions and clients intentions. It can be a complicated planting to manage and I like to work with my clients on their creation and management.
Edible Meadow Research
For the last 5 years I have been carrying out research into the design and management of edible meadows. In spring 2020 I implemented my first trial beds with huge success. From one sowing, myself and clients had consistent harvests throughout the season from a beautiful flower meadow that thrived with wildlife and required very low maintenance.

Why Create An Edible Meadow
An edible meadow is an exciting growing method for clients that want to push the boundaries of ecological gardening and experiment with their cooking. Bespoke plant mixes can be created to the desired products. Whether that is salad leaves, tree plants or a combination of roots, shoots, leaves and flowers. It is a method particularly suited to chefs that want to experiment with a wide range of usual and rare ingredients.
