Do your bit to help up the populations of beneficial insects like bees and lacewings by create a wildlife meadow. Due to habitat loss over the past decades wildlife species have declined rapidly including our favourite insects such as bees, butterflies like purple emperors and colourful beetles.
You don’t need to convert your whole garden into a wildflower meadow. Just a square metre area will suffice to make a difference.
We brought together these varieties to create a colourful and life-saving wildflower mix that contains flowers that grow well and naturally together in wildflower habitats. No variety suppresses another variety so you get success from every flower.
You receive two plants each of:
Field poppy - With a heritage and history this easy to grow plant grows best in the poorest of soils and with little care.
Ox-eye Daisy - Wild white daisy with yellow centres attract the compound eyes of most pollinators. This variety looks great as a cut stem in a vase with sweet peas.
Cornflower - Ideal for naturalising in a sunny wildflower border and is loved by butterflies and bees. Rare blue colour for a British wildflower.
Teasel - After this thistle-like flower has bloomed allow goldfinches to feed from the seed heads, then leave the heads overwinter for attractive stems.
Red Campion - Tall wildflower that has a long flowering period; flowers are at their greatest number in June but some last through to autumn.
We recommend you position your 10 plants in a square metre area. The soil need not be rich- in fact the poorer the soil the better for all of these species.
After your plants have flowered give the stems a bit of a shake and let the seeds fall onto the ground for further flowers next year for the perfect re-generation of habitat.
