The UK has lost 97% of it's wildflower meadows!
If you have enough land to be able to dedicate some to wildflowers please do! Wildflower meadows not only look fantastic, they increase biodiversity and thrive with life. If you don't have a great deal of space, consider creating a wildflower bed or planting up some pots.
Creating this wildflower meadow in Caythorpe, Nottingham was done in two stages: preparing the land followed by sowing the seeds.
The response to this project has been extremely positive; the client informed J.K Conservation Projects that they had seen a noticeable increase in the number of field voles and damselflies in particular. The density of wildflowers has truly provided a great habitat that not only benefits bees and butterflies.
With thanks to 38 Degrees - a fantastic petition website encouraging positive change, who provided several packs of wildflower seeds used on this project.
