Meadow perennials at Three Hagges Wood

 

 

The grassland mixtures at Three Hagges Jubilee Wood are two very similar mixes based on the National Vegetation Classification groups MG5 and MG4. The MG5 mix has been sown on the more northerly, drier areas of the site; the MG4 mixture has been sown on the southerly stretches that are more susceptible to inundation and standing water.
