Is anyone able to point me to a local supplier of Yellow Rattle? I'm looking to sow a fair amount - enough for about 10 acres - this autumn (I believe that's the best time?) as part of an attempt to get a wildflower meadow going.
I'm based in Bridgerule, between Holsworthy and Bude.
Any pointers greatly appreciated!

The deer have eaten a lot of ours this year, so it must be good! It did alright last year, which was the first year.

Last autumn we tried some of Julian's fresh meadow hay, chucking it off the lorry onto long, rough grass as fast as possible on a horrible wet and windy day. We were lucky to get some Exmoor ponies on the field between November and January; they did a brilliant job of stamping-in the hay and eating-off all the rough growth in the field, and we were surprised at the masses of yellow rattle that came up from the hay (and a bit annoyed to see some patches where the deer must have bitten-off the flowers).
