Wildflower meadows: how to create one in your garden (NE32)

Thumbnail image of cover.

The term ‘meadow’ is often applied to any area of grassland, but strictly speaking a meadow is an area of grass where livestock is excluded – between late spring and early summer – to allow the growth of a crop of hay. However, the term also has more romantic associations.

If asked to describe a meadow, many people conjure up an image of waving grass dotted with flecks of white, purple, yellow and pink from a myriad of different wildflowers – all this coupled with the humming of insects and the scents of flowers and freshly cut hay. It is this sort of wildlife-friendly ‘wildflower meadow’ that this booklet will help you create.
