Help up the populations of beneficial insects like bees and lacewings by creating your very own wildlife meadow. Wildlife species have declined rapidly due to habitat loss over the past decades including our favourite insects such as bees, butterflies like orange tips and colourful beetles.
We brought together these varieties to amass a colourful and life-saving wildflower mix that contains flowers that grow hand in hand with each other as they do in natural wildflower habitats. No variety suppresses another variety so you get success from every flower.
You don’t need to designate your entire garden into a wildflower meadow. Just a three square metre area will suffice to make a big difference.
You receive six plants each of:
Selfheal Prunella Vulgaris - A lovely carpet-forming flower that thrives even in semi-shady parts of your garden. Pollinating insects will love this flower as much as you will.
Meadow Clary Salvia Pratensis - A charming plant, great for growing in wildflower collections. They’re particularly attractive to pollinating insects like bees and butterflies.
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.
Red Campion - Tall wildflower that has a long flowering period; flowers are at their greatest number in June but some last through to autumn.
Teasel - After this thistle-like flower has bloomed allow finches to feed from the seed heads, then leave the heads overwinter for attractive stems.
We recommend you position your 30 plants in a three square metre area. The poorer the soil, the better for all of these species which natural survive in shallow dry soils in the country.
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.
