How to make a wildflower meadow
Tried-And-Tested Techniques for New Garden Landscapes
Flowering meadows are appealing to gardeners and valuable for wildlife, but they can be difficult to establish and many people give up. This book will change all that with practical advice and new establishment techniques.
Garden owners will value this alternative approach that can deliver a flowering meadow the same year it is planted. Previous knowledge of plant communities, plant ecology, or even plants is not required. Simply choose the best option for the site using seed, plug plants, bulbs or roll-out turf.
At the heart of the book is a collection of 30 case studies in private gardens, public spaces and community gardens. Thriving meadows are featured alongside paths, utility areas and ponds and in mixed borders, orchards, green roofs, sloping banks, and containers. Interviews with the owners offer a fascinating insight into the many pleasures of living with a wildflower meadow.
