    I read it that there's quite a bit of flexibility if you read @Brisel s link and you would probably be ok. Obviously you must include kale if its a 2 year mix. I would be tempted to buy a few other bits and pieces eg linseed, sunflowers etc to chuck in. Won't cost a lot and will make it 'look' a lot better.

    I read it as I have from the 1st March to establish the mix, so first thing is to clear the ground. So sheep it is for a month or so, then plough.

    Drilling isn't the issue, it's spraying and cultivating. I hand sow spring mixes and autumn goes in when the wheat is drilled. We're talking plots of less than an acre.
