It’s all about the wild flowers

Hi guys, just a quick post today to show you our fantastic wildflower meadow. This meadow was only seeded this year and despite all the very hot weather has still come out and looks fantastic.

We used a company called Boston seeds to supply us with the seeds, we then made sure the ground was cultivated before seeding the flowers. The seeds were a dual purpose seed, with annual flowering the first year while the perennial flowers establish themselves. We then have given them some water and the results have been amazing. Unfortunately, the poppies have not done as well as it has been very dry but apart from that, it looks perfect.

Wildflower meadows are low maintenance, fantastic for the wildlife and are in the decline so if you have a bit of space in your garden that you are not sure what to do with, plant a wildflower meadow! In fact, over the past 100 years, the UK has lost over 97% of its wildflower meadows which equates to 7.5 million acres! Flower meadows are so important to the wildlife, creating the perfect habitat for insects. In fact, over 40 species can be found in just 1 square meter!

So its safe to say we are super chuffed to be helping the countryside, and with such a beautiful outcome it’s hardly a hardship!
