Starting a Wildflower Meadow Area

Despite current efforts to turn the tide back, the catastrophic loss of ancient meadows - an estimated 97% since 1945 - has had an inestimable 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. Modern planting in gardens has 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 none of our plants or seeds has been anywhere near a neonicotinoid.
