Pictures Of A Wildflower Meadow In A London Garden

These photographs were shared with us by Robert Tregaskis from London SE12.

Robert planted an area of Meadowmat for Birds and Bees last winter.  These are the flowers and grasses he’s spotted so far.

It looks as though Robert is doing a grand job with his wildflower patch and I’m sure that the local wildlife has already benefited enormously.

Even a small area of wildflowers can help by providing pollen, nectar and nest sites for all sorts of insects.  A mini-meadow like Robert’s forms part of a wildlife corridor – a bit like the A1 for butterflies and bees with plenty of service stations to stop for a rest and something to eat.

It’s not difficult to grow a mini wildflower meadow, especially if, like Robert, you use wildflower turf to get it started.
