Soft Fruit & Orchard

A selection of mixtures designed especially for use in orchards and soft fruit farms. They are more disease resistant, tolerant to shade and aid in prevention of soil erosion.

Soft Fruit Mix

A blend of amenity type grasses specifically designed to give extremely hard wearing performance over many years. It creates a dense sward which is slower growing and therefore requires less cutting.
