Starting a Wildflower Meadow Area

Our destruction of ancient wildflower meadows - an estimated 97% since the 30s - has had a catastrophic impact. Unimproved grassland is one of the most important of our native habitats, and its disappearance seems to be a major factor in recent declines and extinctions of a number of species. Pesticides have also contributed to the problems faced by pollinators.

If you are planning a meadow area please have a look at our resources section or watch our short video on making a wildflower meadow area. We also have a section in the website on meadow creation.

Head over to Ponds and Rivers to see our lovely aquatic wildflowers.

Please note that our plants and seeds have been nowhere near a neonicotinoid. They are sourced from a network of expert small growers and harvesters across the UK.
