Ref: GL6813

Suitable for all



Wildflowers have become a desirable part of modern landscapes. However, establishing this beautiful and biodiverse habitat eludes even the most avid gardeners and landscapers. Be guided through the historical and ecological significance of wildflower meadows, analysing the different methods of meadow establishment from naturalising and seeding, to the latest innovative developments in meadow creation using turf and pre-seeded growing. Start thinking about your own wildflower meadow with advice from James Hewetson-Brown, pioneer of Wildflower Turf® and creator of over 1 million square meters of wildflower spaces. Although wildflowers require little maintenance, understanding key principles of on-going management delivers stunning results and long-term success.
