A Bright Seeds mixture for late sowing, containing buckwheat, early vetch, white mustard, forage rape, Goblin (rape/kale hybrid), texel greens, fodder radish, Utopia (mustard/kale hybrid) and leafy turnip.
The mustard and buckwheat give early cover (the buckwheat producing a grain within 8 weeks) and the others give good resilience over the Winter months.
