Sweet Vernal Grass Seed (Anthoxanthum Odoratum)


Why Buy this product?

  • Early flowering, tufted perennial grass
  • 10-100 cm in height
  • Strongly scented with Coumarin (resembling a smell of vanilla when taking a cut)
  • Found in a large selection of soils (sand- clay & dry-wet) and habitats (grasslands, meadows, pastures, open woodlands, heath and moorland) 
  • Found naturally in the UK
  • At one stage very popular in seed mixtures for hay, but not always very palatable due to a high stem to leaf ratio
  • Slow to establish, best sown with other fine grasses
  • Not normally sown straight (approx 8-10 kg if needed to be) and 0.1-0.5 kg in mixtures


Available in 1kg, 2kg, 5kg, 10kg and 20kg bag sizes.
